Blood Orange Tree
Our potted blood orange tree can be grown and harvested on a patio or in a sunny kitchen. A relative of the beloved navel orange, the blood orange is treasured for its sweet-tart flavor, its striking deep-red flesh and the brilliant tang of its zest. It complements seafood and other entrees, adds creative possibilities to juices and desserts, and can be eaten right off the tree. The white flowers are most notable for their creamy, delicate, tropical fragrance. Shipped to you from the California grower in a 6" diam. terra-cotta pot, the tree arrives approx. 18" high and can eventually reach a mature height of 4 or 5 feet; the tree may not bear fruit the first year. Care instructions are included. The tree can only be shipped within the 48 contiguous states. Agricultural regulations prohibit shipments to Florida and Texas.
