This fruit tree has performed very well in my backyard in Houston, TX. It is planted in a somewhat sheltered corner but the upper half receives sun throughout the day. It is rare that I supply extra water but do apply citrus fertilizer 2-3 times each season and some years have applied dormant spray to counteract scale. The tree is now ~4m tall and yields over 100 oranges each year.
