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

A lovely dense compact tree, I grow it in a row with dwarf citrus. Beautiful scented flowers int he spring followed by high quality fruit. Easy to peal, large juicy oranges.

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.
