Orange trees can grow 18 to 22 feet tall, most citrus varieties are self-fertile, so only one tree is needed for fruit production. On average, fruit bearing begins when the trees are between 3 and 6 years old. Farmers can expect to obtain 100 to 300 oranges per growing season. Citrus fruits make up around 36 percent of the total fruit production and the mandarin orange is one of the most important in terms of acreage, production, consumption and export potential.
