DWARF ORANGE - CARA CARA
This variety was discovered in Venezuela in 1976. It is smaller than many other navel selections but has pink flesh similar to Star Ruby grapefruit. In South Africa it matures slightly earlier than Washington navel. Although Cara Cara has yet to be evaluated fully under Australian conditions there is considerable interest in it locally. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Dwarf Orange - Cara Cara
I have had one fruiting for 4 years. Ripens at the same time as my Washington Navel. Colours up well and has pink flesh with rapberry flavour. Worth owning! | Nicole Lan - Perth, WA 05-Jul-2015
