I bought this from Daleys because the citrus oil from these oranges is the unique flavouring ingredient in Earl Grey tea.

Also, you can't go wrong with citrus trees - they are as ornamental as any tree, with their beautiful evergreen leaves and their pretty fruits and flowers, not to mention the lovely perfume of the flowers.

It has not fruited yet but is doing okay considering I had to squeeze it into a darish corner of the garden as I don;t have enough room! I would rather have planted it in full sun as it deserves.

Have you had a fruit yet? Is this orange edible like normal oranges or only good for its oils? I am wondering if you can use it to make your own kind of Earl Grey by adding the rind to tea?
