|Is it self-fertile? If so, after how many years in ground will fruit appear. If not, may I just buy a second one?

|Citrus trees are self fertile so you won't need to plant a second one. You should see some flowers on your fruit tree this year and an orange or two next year. By the third and fourth years your tree should have tons of blossoms - but not all flowers will turn into fruit. Citrus trees develop many more blossoms than it can develop into fruit so a majority of those blossoms will simply die off. But, you should still get a substantial harvest from your tree. Enjoy!
