Q.orange tree

Zone florida panhandle | jgaylor62 added on May 21, 2012 | Answered

I am trying to figure out why my orange tree will not produce any fruit, not even a flower. I planted the tree around 4-5 yrs ago, and it doesn’t seem to be growing any taller, or producing any blooms for fruit. What do I need to do to help the tree along and maybe get some fruit?

Have you fertilized the tree? It may be lacking some type of nutrient. I would have your soil tested at your local extension office and then add some phosphorous to the soil to encourage blooming.

This article has fertilizing information that should help as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/fertilizing-citrus-trees-best-practices-for-citrus-fertilizing.htm
