Sugar Belle Orange (Citrus reticulata Clemintine x Minneola)
More resistant to greening! Sugar Belle is the orange that saved the Florida citrus industry. This University of Florida mandarin hybrid is particularly resistant to disease. This tree is the poster child for vitality, with notoriously quick growth and a fairly early harvest that will begin in Mid-November. The deep-red-orange, medium-sized fruits of Sugar Belle orange trees have an intense sweetness, balanced with just the right amount of citrusy tartness. Sugar Belle oranges pack the vitamin C punch we all need at the start of cold & flu seasons, with reports of considerably higher levels of it compared to other citrus fruit.
