No blossoms on Moro Blood Orange Tree

tking268June 23, 2013

My Moro Blood Orange tree hasn't blossomed yet this season. The tree is about 12-15 years old and has produced fruit every season, including this past season. Tree looks healthy, leaves are dark green with new growth. Regular fertilizer with GroPower Citrus and Avocado. Any ideas?
My Improved Meyer (same age), Cara Cara, Bearss Lime, Satsuma Mandarin and Golden Nugget Mandarins are all doing well.

I've heard that you'll often have an off-year with certain Citrus. If it doesn't bloom and fruit next year, then you might become concerned.

After three years, this was the first year that my Moro bloomed. It began blooming in mid-February and continued through mid-May, at which point the fruit had all set. I wouldn't expect the Moro to bloom this late in the season.

I also heard that Moros can alternate bear. If it hasn't bloomed by now, I don't think it will. Mine bloomed late February and lasted about 2 months. I'm sure it will bloom again next year. Sounds like a very healthy tree!

Yes, I was thinking of Josh's tree as I was reading this!

Hello Josh by the way!
