Description

The "Valencia" cultivar of Sweet Orange (Citrus x sinensis) is celebrated globally for its mostly seedless, thin-skinned fruit that yields an abundance of juice. Named after the esteemed València oranges of Spain and pioneered by William Wolfskill in southern California during the 19th century, it stands as a top choice for juicing oranges, promising a burst of freshness and zest.

Ideal for planting in pots or directly in the ground, those choosing to plant "Valencia" in sandy soils should bolster it with a soil conditioner for best results. Positioned under full sun, it relishes consistent hydration, especially during Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn). To enhance its fruiting potential, it's beneficial to administer a citrus-oriented fertiliser in Djilba (late winter to spring).
