The Washington Naval Orange is cold hardy in zones 9 and further south. North of these zones the tree should be grown in a container that can be brought indoors when temperatures fall below 50 degrees F. Whether planting in the ground or in a container, plant sweet orange trees in well-drained, loamy soils. Orange trees perform best in full sun.

When planting in heavy clay soils mix in plenty of organic matter to improve drainage.

When planting in containers, use a high-quality, course potting soil. The container you plant in should be several inches larger than the container the plant was growing in when purchased.

Other than damage from cold weather or broken branches, no pruning is required. That being said, you can prune during the late winter to control the size of the tree. Trees grown in pots will naturally be smaller in size.

I fertilize citrus trees with a high-nitrogen citrus fertilizer in spring and again in late spring. Follow instructions on product label for application rates.
