No, you would have to ask, or find out which nursery supplies them( might be on the label) The main blood types avail in Australia as budwood are Arnold, Harvard, Ruby and Maltese also Tarocco is grown in orchards. Cara Cara pink navel is also "similar" to a blood, but same pigment as red grapefruit.
Arnold is close to a Moro type, the others may not get as red, depending on climate??
I dont know if they would be propagating any other varieties?

Tarocco is not available in Australia, which is probably the best blood orange there is. Though perhaps the flavour is very much unique to the climate and soil where they originate from.
Most likely either Arnold, Harvard or Maltese as these three are the only budwood available in Australia.

Tarocco is not avail as budwood, but it is in trials and private imports in orchards.
Ruby blood is on the Auscitrus budwood list, with Arnold,Harvard,Maltese. I can remember seeing Blood oranges at primary school(1970s) so there mat be others floating around??

Thank you. It looks like Arnold for me. I asked the Bunnings staff and they didn't know and it was labelled as Blood Orange.
