Navel Orange : FUKUMOTO 1 gal pot

Call for Price

To purchase these, please visit Tropic of Canada

Some sources insist this unique variety is the sweetest orange to be found. It was introduced from Japan in the 1980s and is similar in many respects to the regular Washington navel orange. Fukumoto, however, is less vigorous, making it especially well suited to container growing. The extra-sweet and juicy, reddish-orange fruits also ripen about a month earlier. Like all navel oranges, they are seedless and easy-to-peel. (Citrus sinensis)

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
