Midnight Valencia Orange 20L

R490.00

Midnight Valencia Orange Tree (Citrus sinensis ‘Midknight Valencia’) is a remarkable variety known for its large, exceptional quality. This tree yields more fruit within its canopy, making it a standout choice for orange enthusiasts.

The fruit boasts abundant juice content and is larger than standard Valencia Lates. Midnight oranges are virtually seedless and mature slightly earlier than the conventional Valencia. Midnight cultivar is an outstanding all-around orange variety.

The tree’s robust growth and upright stature contribute to its hardiness, while its fruit quality speaks for itself.
This tree offers a balanced yield throughout the growing season, ensuring a consistent supply.

Planting:  

Plant your tree in full sun with well-draining soil. Dig a hole about 1m by 1m, mix at least one bag of compost to your soil and ensure you plant at the same height as the bag you bought the tree in.

Water thoroughly and apply mulch around the base, avoiding direct contact with the tree trunk.

Container Planting:

If you opt for container planting, use a spacious barrel or pot with proper drainage. Mix potting soil and compost to fill.

Watering: 

The amount of water needed depends on the dryness of the soil. For trees in the ground, assess moisture levels at a depth of 10cm; for container trees, check at a depth of 5cm.

Fertilising:

Apply slow-release citrus fertilizer during the harvest season and repeat after the fruiting period. Utilising our slow-release fertiliser is a must for citrus; even though it is called berry fertiliser it is for all plants/trees.

Pruning: 

Generally, pruning is unnecessary except for removing dead or diseased branches—combat pests by spraying with a hose and utilizing Neem oil or EM Control.

Harvesting: 

Ripe fruit can be identified by its firmness and juiciness. In warmer regions, harvesting typically occurs from mid-July to mid-August, while in colder areas, it extends from August to mid-September.

Pest and Disease Management: It is important to watch out for pests like aphids, scale insects, and mites. Remove leaves that are bubbly and dispose of  them immediately. We recommend Effective Microorganisms to prevent the spread of these pests and diseases. Hose the tree first, to remove the aphids, and then spray well with EM Control. As they tree grows larger it will be healthy and pests will be a thing of the past.

Storage Options: You have several storage choices. You can keep the fruit in the pantry for up to a week, in the refrigerator for a month, or freeze it for longer-term use.
