Any orange tree can be grown in a pot, but its ultimate size will be constrained by the size of the pot. Dwarf varieties are good choices for containers. They grow about 10-12 feet tall and 9-11 feet wide. They are on Flying Dragon rootstock. They produce about 50 percent less fruit, which is still plenty for the average household.
