    It really depends on the type of orange you would like to grow.

    Here is a list:

    • Macetera ripens from January through June.
    • Valencia ripens from mid-February through June.
    • Marrs ripens from mid-November through mid-March.
    • Diller ripens from mid-November through March.
    • Cara Cara Navel ripens December through February.
    • Hamlin, Robertson Navel and Washington Navel oranges ripen December through mid-March.
    • Trovita, Sanquinelli, Torocco and Seville ripen December through March.
    • Ruby orange trees ripen mid-December through the beginning of March.”

    You would have to plan carefully, know how long the process it takes from the orange trees to be planted to be harvested and plant accordingly.

    The best time to plant any citrus tree (or an orange tree) is in the spring or in the fall.  If planting in the spring – plant before the weather is too hot but after the last threat of frost.  If planting in the fall – plant two months before any freezing temperatures to give it time for the roots to begin to grow.
