About the Moro Blood Orange Tree

A productive, unique citrus tree prized for its berry-like flavor! The Moro Blood Orange tree is a beautiful and productive citrus tree that is sure to add a burst of color and flavor to your garden or landscape. In its native Mediterranean growing region, the Moro Blood orange makes up one-third of the local citrus market. Now Americans are catching on to this delicious fruit!

This early-season Italian variety is highly ornamental and known for its lovely shape, stunning flowers, and fruit. This blood orange tends to bear heavily but usually in alternate years. The flesh of the fruit is deep-red to violet, the rind is orange with a pink blush, and is known to hold well on the tree.

Moro Blood oranges are both intensely flavored and colored, adding a unique citrus flavor as well as visual appeal to a dish. The distinctive, dark-red flesh and juice is rich in nutrients and have a tart, yet sweet flavor with hints of raspberry. They are often used fresh in cocktails, desserts, baking, and savory dishes. It’s an Italian staple when cooking!

How to Grow the Moro Blood Orange Tree

The Moro Blood Orange tree is easy to grow and care for, with glossy dark green leaves, fragrant white flowers, and medium-sized fruit that ripens in late winter or early spring. The tree requires full sun exposure, well-draining soil, regular watering, and a balanced citrus fertilizer for best results.

It can be grown in a large container, just bring it indoors during the cold months and place it near a sunny window. For best results, apply regular applications of fertilizer, particularly during the growing season. Use a citrus-specific fertilizer and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application rates.

Whether you’re an experienced gardener or just starting out, the Moro Blood Orange tree is a great addition to any home garden or landscape. With its striking appearance and exceptional taste, the Moro Blood Orange tree is sure to become a favorite among your family and friends for years to come.
