Dwarf Orange - Navelina

Had mine for about four years. Bit slow to bear but now prolific. Small tree with sweet large fruit and needs to be mulched and watered on the leaf outer drip. Likes Epsom salts and little pruning of inside twigs. Watch for stink bugs. | Walter Libl - Morayfield, QLD 21-Jun-2016

Update: 2137 days 15hrs

Comments: -

Had my one and only fruit off this about a month ago.  It's only been in for about a year, so I took 99% of the flowers off.....just wanted 1 for a taste.  Very nice orange, but probably not as "orangy" as I would have liked.  Hopefully will get better with age.

Planted: 2008

Height 0.75 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 3

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: comfrey mulch, dynamic lifter,seaweed fert.

Pest Control:

Cterpillars which I usually pull off and squash.  If there is only one, I usually leave it if it's not doing too much harm as I love butterflies.

Organic Status:Partially Organic

I have problems with Californian red scale on this tree, it was saved from a cheap reject bin during the drought.   I spray with eco oil and I have cut it back hard to produce a flush of vigorous new growth.

It is a beautiful tree and the oranges are a striking orange colour.

I love my trees to look like standard trees so I prune them severely when they are young. In the first years I only care about shape.

In spite of my pruning the Navelina produced a lot of fruit.

I tasted one of these in Atherton earlier this year and was most impressed by both the fruit and its flavour

June 2016 I had 1 piece of fruit this year in April. More orange inside than the Washington and amazingly sweet

Dec 2016 This tree is going great guns and it has a nice crop on it. It seems as though it will be slightly ahead of the Washington navel by about 2 weeks as it was last year

April 2017 This year the tree has been heavily hit with gall wasp whilst the other citrus have missed out entirely



Fruiting Months June and July

Planted: 2014

How does the taste compare to Washington Navels?
Slicko says... [312 days 1hrs ago]
Hi Swoon, I am of the opinion that it is seeter than the WN, probably better than it. The home grown fruit of both varieties leaves shop bought fruit for dead... Mick

Only a young tree.  Has struggled a little as I moved it after a few months as I (and it) was not happy with the original location.  Seems to be coming back and I anticipate good growth over the next 12 months.

I let the sweet potato take over a bit and drown out this tree a little.  Have just cut it back so am hoping it will struggle on - may replace it I think as I am losing patience.
