Sweet Orange (Citrus × sinensis)
Citrus x sinensis 'Sweet Orange'
Nothing says spring is around the corner like fresh smell of orange blossoms filling the air. Oranges such as the Sweet Orange are used all throughout Southern California because they are extremely easy to grow and have a low seed count. These are multi purpose orange as well! Use these in cooking, juicing, cocktails, beers, or a healthy snack right off the tree. Sweet Orange trees will begin to bloom in late winter early spring and by summer the fruit has set and little green Sweet Oranges will begin to grow into beautiful bright healthy oranges ready to be picked by early to mid fall.These are a small to medium sized tree that work in all landscape applications as well. These can be used to create a bit of shade, as a focal point, on patios and in pots as well as used to create a living hedge.
