How do you grow bigger oranges?

Therefore, if you want the fruit tree to grow larger, the best option is to use a fertilizer heavy in nitrogen, perhaps with an N-P-K ratio of 2-1-1 or 3-1-1. If the fertilizer is slightly acidic, that would also be beneficial as citrus trees, including oranges, generally prefer to have a slightly acidic soil.

Can oranges be poisonous?

Orange peels are not poisonous, and as many cooks know, orange zest can pack a big flavor punch. They can also be difficult to digest, and unless you're eating a peel from an organic orange, it could be covered in chemicals. If you do eat the peel, you'll get a good amount of nutrients.
