indoor orange tree questions: fruit, soil, etc...

17 years ago

I have two small orange trees growing in pots in my home. I have no idea what kind of orange trees they are....I started them from seeds in a summer school class that I took when I was 11. I am now 24, so I guess that makes the trees 13 years old. My main question is whether or not the trees will ever produce fruit? I read somewhere that trees grown from seeds may not ever produce there any way that I can make them grow fruit? Or should I just assume they never will? Also, what kind of potting soil would be best? I recently repotted them using miracle grow potting soil...will that be sufficient? Should I add any sort of nutrients or sand to the soil? Obviously I am not exactly well versed in the ways of citrus growing, so any advice anyone could give me would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
