Blood Orange Trees
Q.

Blood oranges

Zone 95051 | Rod Brunngraber added on February 28, 2018 | Answered

I planted a blood orange tree about 3 years ago, and it has never had any blossoms. It also has not grown very much (maybe 1 foot since planted) Did I get a sterile tree or could it be the conditions, water or fertilizer? Thanks, Rod

It can take anywhere from 3 to 6 years to see a bloom realistically. If it has not grown much, then I would chalk it up to its growing conditions. These trees are relatively fast growing, and when they don't you can usually pin that to an issue.
