Water has a profound effect on oranges being as they are 90% water/ On low rainfall years they are small, not very sweet and relatively dry. In years we have good steady rainfall they are almost softball size and very sweet and juicy. Not much rainfall the past 3 months here so they are small but with the 7" I have gotten the past few days I will not be surprised if some start to split. I don't water my mature trees because I have way too many. Would be watering 24/7 some summers.

The blood oranges and grapefruit we are getting this year seem very juicy and very sweet. Last year, the flavor seemed off or something, not sure why. The blood oranges are only now getting fully ripe, but they were sweet even a month ago. Cold weather seems to sweeten them up and it has been or at least I think it has been cooler this year than last, maybe that’s accounting for the difference in taste. Our little grove does get irrigated in dry weather.

Size of the fruit seems pretty normal. Maybe the irrigation helps with keeping the size consistent. But, the flavor and sweetness does vary year to year. I guess some weather conditions produces better fruit.

How often should you water young orange trees? I have 2 blood red orange trees, they are 3 years old and have not produced yet.

They can get over watered and how much depends on soil make up and rain.

Check 2-3 inches down in the dirt in the tree root areas.... don’t water it if there is moisture in the soil.

Feed it micro-life here in late February each month to get the blooms going in the spring.

You would almost help it by letting it get stronger to hold fruit and picking off the blooms one more year.... but it’s your tree, have fun with it.
