Combined with my Tahitian Lime, Minneola Tangelo and Ruby Grapefruit, I hope to get some delicious fruit from this particular specimen in the years ahead.

This is an easy to grow fruit tree with good quality and productivity. Fruit may need thinning early on to let the vegetation grow faster and not spend its energy producing fruit of poor quality in the first few seasons.

Unbelievably sweet, luscious and flavoursome fruit. Why anyone bothers to eat store bought oranges is beyond me. Flowers itself half to death each year, so I will be ruthless next year. Early heatwave and severe winds caused havoc this season, with mos...

This poor tree is not happy. It's planted between a Eureka Lemon and Tahitian Lime - both of which are doing extremely well. But the Orange tree is sulking.

I've struggled with this but then found out the soil was holding too much water.  It was dug up and the soil area raised about a foot, then pruned the tree back.  Since then it's sprouted a lot of new growth, but it has set it back.

Navels are just the best. Seedless, juicy and tasty, as well as being disease resistant too.
