About The Parent Washington Navel Orange Tree

Beloved by citrus enthusiasts! Since its introduction in the 1870s, the Washington Navel has become the most popular orange variety in the United States.!

With its irresistibly sweet flavor and perfect balance of juiciness, the Washington Navel Orange is a delight to enjoy fresh. Unlike the Valencia Orange, which ripens later and is renowned for its juice, the Washington Navel boasts a large, meaty fruit that peels effortlessly and separates into delicious sections.

This early-maturing, seedless orange is one of the first fruits ready for harvest each winter, making it a highlight of the season. Its ability to remain on the tree for up to three months without compromising quality or integrity is truly impressive. The Parent Washington Navel Orange Tree is of medium size and yields abundant crops of seedless, orange-fleshed fruits. Cultivate this citrus treasure in your garden and experience the joy of savoring its exceptional taste year after year.

How to Grow Washington Navel Oranges

Growing Washington Navel Orange trees is a rewarding experience, whether you have a suitable outdoor climate or need to grow them in containers in cooler regions. These citrus trees thrive in full sun, so choose a location that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight each day.

They prefer fertile, well-drained soil with a pH level around 7. Regular watering is necessary to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. In cooler climates, container cultivation is an excellent option. Select a large container with good drainage and use a high-quality potting mix. Place the container in a sunny spot, such as a patio or near a south-facing window and protect it from frost or cold drafts.

Pruning can help manage the size of the tree and promote optimal fruit production. Fertilize the tree with a citrus-specific fertilizer according to the package instructions. With proper care and attention, you can enjoy the beauty and delicious fruit of your Parent Washington Navel Orange tree!
