Orange has been planted 8 times by Growstuff members.

The Orange is a tropical evergreen tree that produces round orange fruits, also known as "Oranges." Many species are self-pollinating, but having multiple trees for cross pollination can improve fruit size. Trees need temperatures between 21-32° C to grow properly and produce fruit. Oranges can usually withstand winter temperatures down to -6.1° C without experiencing damage to their leaves or trunk. Trees will bear fruit 2-3 years after transplanting.8
