The Q&A Archives: Dwarf trees

Question: I planted a dwarf orange tree last year. When should I expect to see oranges grow? It is full of little flowers so far, are those potential oranges? Thank you so much for your advice/help.



Answer: The flowers are potential fruit, but don't get your hopes up too high; a young orange tree will open lots more flowers than it has the strength to develop into fruit. You may get only 3-4 fruits from dozens of flowers when it is young. As your tree matures it will produce a significant amount of fruit each year. Just be patient!
