During construction this Spring I removed my failing Robertson Navel. Unable to find another of suitable size, I replaced it with a Washington Navel. It’s doing well and sporting next year’s crop.
Very nice Richard. A nice crop for a young tree .
Mine are golf ball size and should be ready next June/July
Richard, where do you normally get your fruit trees?
Here are the places I’ll search in the greater San Diego area:
Walter Andersen Nurseries (Poway, Point Loma)
Green Thumb (San Marcos)
City Farmer (a bit east of downtown)
Briggs Tree Company (Vista)
A very good online source for Citrus, esp. uncommon varieties: Four Winds Growers
Thanks! I’ve been to both Walter Andersons, I actually work next to the Pt Loma one. I’ll have to see about visiting the others when I’m out that way.
Very nice Richard. Good colour too
those look great.
Have you ever taste Texas Sweet orange? I bought a box from Our local HyVee Supermarket and they are so sweet.
Fresh Oranges in February, God’s creations never cease to amaze me.
@tonyOmahaz5 - it appears the name is the trademark of a distributor in Texas. The variety is likely Washington.
My WN tree right now is so loaded with fruit I had to shim up the limbs with 2X4’s to keep them from breaking!
Very prolific for a young tree. I’m sure I have over a hundred pounds of fruit on my tree just waiting to be consumed.
We have a place in Phoenix with a Cara Cara Orange. It was an impulse buy at Lowe’s many years ago. The thing grew way faster than expected and puts out beautiful and tasty fruit. I mulch and trim it and that’s about it.
I wish I could grow them down here so bad!
Richard, what a reward this year! Amazing crop! Knowing how you keep your trees. That is probably no taller then 5-6 feet?
