At What Age Will a Valencia Orange Tree First Produce?

Valencia orange is a popular sweet orange ideal for eating or juicing. Its fruit is ready for harvesting in February. Trees can produce oranges in their first or second year after transplanting, but gardeners should remove the fruit. This allows the tree's energy to go into growth instead of fruit production. Three-year-old transplanted trees produce harvestable oranges, according to Texas A&M University.
