Semi-dwarf on Cuban Shaddock rootstock.
Zones: 10 (all other zones protect from freezing temperatures)
Fruit: Burgundy colored flesh has a sweet/tart berry flavor, harvest in January & February for best sugar/acid balance. Not as sweet as traditional oranges, wonderful for juice blends.
Facts of note: Originally from Italy, the best red blush on exterior of fruit develops inland, interior color will develop in most climates with some nighttime chilling.
Add a little zest to your garden! Citrus trees are potted, evergreen, semi-dwarf, 1 ½-years-old, pencil caliper, 18”-24” tall from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree. They will, with good care, produce fragrant, self-pollinating flowers and wonderful fruit. Height 8’–12’, but can be pruned to suit in ground or in containers. Choose a sunny location, in well drained soil, sheltered from wind. They are affected by below freezing temperatures, and in many locales require cold protection. Most tender to most hardy: Bearss Lime, lemons, orange, tangelo, grapefruit, mandarin, kumquat. Non-taxable. These are evergreen trees and thus the dormant bare root guarantee does not apply. Your trees will arrive in good, viable condition. Contact us immediately if they do not.
