How to Grow and Care for Hamlin Sweet Orange Tree

Hamlin Sweet Orange Tree (Citrus sinensis ‘Hamlin’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-11 patio / 9-11 outdoors
Harvest time October - January


Plant in an area where it can receive full sunlight (8 hours or more per day) in soil that is well-draining. If planted in a container, place your tree in a south-facing window for enough sunlight. 


For trees planted in a container, they will require more water than those planted in the ground. In the spring, water 2-3 times per week. In the summer, up your watering to a daily occurrence, so long as the soil doesn’t get soggy. Misting the tree, especially indoors, allows for proper humidity.


Fertilize in early spring or late winter with a citrus-specific fertilizer, like the one included in our Citrus Care Kit, generally once every six weeks. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2 to 3 months. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.


In order to promote growth outwards, prune the tree by cutting back broken, diseased, or dead branches as they develop. Eliminate any crossing or rubbing branches.
