Question: Are oranges considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Taxonomists classify oranges as dicots.
Why are Oranges Considered Dicots?
Oranges are considered dicots mainly because they have two embryonic leaves contained within their angiosperm. That means they have two baby leaves inside their seed. They also have woody stalks with bark covering and radial roots that emerge from a central taproot. These are all characteristics of dicots.
