Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

Cara Cara Navel Orange is a large fruit-producing evergreen shrub or small tree that forms a lush spreading mound with aromatic foliage and has extremely sweet fruit ready for harvest in winter.  The highly fragrant creamy white flowers bloom in early spring.  Cara Cara fruits are seedless with very sweet red flesh that has a unique taste with notes of berries and spice.  Grows best in full sun and deep, evenly moist, sandy to loamy well-drained acidic soils.  Cannot tolerate frost.  Cara Cara is noted for being almost disease free.
