Blood Orange (Citrus × sinensis)
Grafted and ready to produce!
⚠ Citrus ships to Florida only ⚠
Blood Oranges are as intimidating as your elderly neighbor’s tea cup poodle. This citrus is named for its fruit with crimson-colored flesh, which is delicious, not malicious. For what it’s worth, people who do not typically like the acidity of citrus fruit might actually enjoy eating blood oranges, which have 10 percent less acid content than other citrus fruits. For gardeners who would rather not explain this phenomenon to non-gardeners, we welcome you to the dark side with open arms. Blood Orange trees will bloom in the early spring, and like most citrus, depend on excellent establishment and care within the first year to produce fruit. The most ideal spot to plant a Blood Orange tree is in a sunny, dry spot reminiscent of its Southern Mediterranean origin.
