Zone Ventura, CA 93001 | Anonymous added on August 19, 2019 | Answered

I planted 3 years ago, a little blood orange tree in our back yard, in Ventura, California. The tree has grown into a 5 foot tall, healthy looking specimen--but we have yet to see a single blossom on it. The leaves are nice and green, and it's a bushy tree about 3 ft wide now. I've done minimum pruning on it. It gets a deep watering about once a week---but I have'nt fertilized it yet. Does it normally take more than 3 years for it to start to bear fruit? thanks very much Kathryn

Fruit is expected 3 to 5 years after planting. Get going with the fertilizer, those trees are heavy feeders. See the articles below.
