Valencia Orange (Citrus x sinensis 'Valencia')
Citrus x sinensis 'Valencia'
The Sweet Orange known as the Valencia has been growing in Southern California all the way to Florida for nearly 300 years! These oranges have many purposes and one of their best uses is to make sweet freshly squeezed orange juice. Blooming in late winter to early spring, the orange blossom fragrance is a tell-tale sign that spring has arrived. After a couple weeks of blooming small pea size oranges will begin to develop on the tree. Valencia Orange trees produce large yields in late fall to early winter and can hold well on the tree for a few weeks.
These citrus trees are a small to medium tree making them perfect size for any landscape style or application. These can be planted in rows to create a privacy screen, by themselves as a focal point, near windows to provide shade and even in pots on patios and indoors.
Pro Tip: The zest or outer peal of the Valencia Orange makes a sweet garnish for drinks, deserts, and meals.
