How to sow and care for Orange Fruit
The best time to sow is in the spring when the soil is warm enough. Only a small part of the seedlings will eventually become young, so you will need to sow a lot of seeds. Sowing is done in large pots at 3-inch intervals, and seeds are sown on a line at 1-inch intervals. The soil mixture consists of sand and seeds used as a potting soil mixture.
You should keep the soil moist (but not sticky) until the seedlings appear. When the seedlings reach 20-28 cm in height, they can be transplanted into large individual pots filled with soil, fertilizer and a small amount of well-rotten fertilizer. In general, young saplings should be well exposed to sunlight, but it is advisable to experience the first winter in a protected indoor area.
