They are polyembryonic and normally grow true from seed if you can get hold of some. Only use fresh seed from citrus tho as they aren't viable when dried.

I'm also after Seville orange trees or seed. Unfortunately all the trees I have seen to date are of the "Smooth Seville Orange" type which isn't what I'm after.

"Seville orange" seems to be a synonym for "sour orange" of any type in Australia and the smooth seville appears to be a sour orange-pummelo hybrid.

I am after is the type of rough skinned sour orange that is commonly seen in southern Spain (Seville for instance...) and is imported to Scotland for making marmalade. Known locally as Sevillano or Agrio de Espana, Real etc

Are the Sour orange (Citrus aurantium) seeds sold for producing rootstock closer to what I am looking after?

The owners have said that they don't have them.

Essentially I don't think that they exist in Australia now. None of the specialist growers have them and as the Smooth Seville has been around since the early 20th century, I think that this latter type has replaced the true Seville in Australia, both as a rootstock and as a fruit tree.

The only source I can think of is if somebody had an older tree on a private property.

HI - Did you ever get anywhere in your search for Seville Orange stock? We cannot locate any either. Just the smooth skin and that is not the same thing at all, apparently.

I have a Seville orange tree I planted about 15-18 years ago. It makes wonderful marmalade, and one lady travels up to the hills each year to get some oranges.

I think so few people make marmalade these days,that there is not much demand for the tree.

When they are ripe, I can send seeds to any one who wants them. You can email me at: julwood at iprimus dot com dot au. (safe way to put addresses on the forum to avoid spam)

HI there Julie,

I arrive home this morning and we have taken the seeds from the oranges you sent - there were about thirty seeds in all, put them in potting mix, watered them in and are now standing around with arms crossed and tapping our feet waiting for them to germinate. :)

Thank you so much for your genorisity,

Felicity

My Seville orange seeds have germinated! It seemed to take for ever, but was actually only 3 1/2 weeks. It's been hard in the 36c heat to keep them damp, but I put them near the front door to remind me to water during the day.

Anyone else had success?

That’s great Mary, now the challenge of keeping them alive.

I am not risking doing all to myself and have potted up a few seedlings, to be given away at the seed savers Lunch next week, to enthusiasts. Johno also collected some rough Seville seeds from a source in the ACT. So far Julies WA seedlings look similar to these but the smooth Seville seedlings look quite different.

I have been growing a number of citrus from seed and it usually takes ages. I was so surprised at my stepdads heatmat and little greenhouse, the seeds jumped up quick and grew like the blazes.

If anyone would like seedlings let me know.

Thanks allybanana, another seed has sprouted since my last post - interesting to read about your stepdad's 'heatmat". My seeds only sprouted after I put the punnets on an old frying pan in the sun, then it happened within a couple of days. :) Hope they stay alive. When should I transplant them?

Wouldn't it be great to do a "family tree' of the tree? LOL I have seven seedlings so some of them will go elsewhere... love to know if the 'descendants' of the Julie Tree will spread around the country... the ripple effect. Anyway, mine are sprouting a second set of leaves - looking good!

Thanks to Julie and Allybanana for one of those seville seedlings. I would enjoy hearing a little more about how the rough seville is better and the way in which it is used to make marmalade. Is the pith intensely bitter?

@Lachlann: it's just a matter of taste; some people prefer supermarket marmalade because they're used to it; others prefer the bitter sweet - like dark chocolates versus sweet milk chocolates.

Mary T, Great analogy that rich dark chocolate is bitter, but sooooo good. My family makes Seville orange marmalade to sell and it has a loyal following. I will ask them for the recipe for you Lachlann the next time I see them.

Wow Lachlann, ID 873 you have been involved a while, my son Jesse and i put in the sugar cane, it is looking happy, the position has some protection from frost but it could get scorched on one side.

Part of Johno and my interest in Seville is as a cold resistant, drought resistant rootstock for a largish tree. I heard somewhere Meyer lemon grafted onto it is a tough combination for dryer colder areas. I want to try grafting this combination and with Satsuma mandarin to grow in the ACT and a mates farm in Towamba southern NSW. A thoughtfully given fruit tree makes the best christmas and birthday presents I think.

Hi allybanana
I would love to buy a few seedlings of the Seville oranges from you if you have any left. Can you post them? It will be a while before I can get down your way. I have been looking for little plants for ages because I would love to try growing them on. The oranges make the most delicious marmalade don't they.

So good to hear it's possible to get rough skinned Seville oranges for Marmalade in Australia. It's the Seville season in Europe and my family will be making their marmalade. Hoping Julie will have a seed or two to spare when the time is right here.

Jessica, Julie's Seville Orange has seedlings all over Australia! The photo is of my seedling from the Julie Tree.

I have nine 'trees' each with four leaves so don't know if I will live to see fruit (how long would it take?) but will make sure the trees live on... once they are a decent size I will find new homes for eight of them. :)

Hi Julie I am chasing a couple of Seville
Oranges as well. I have spoken to Olea who don't grow it anymore & also David's G/C who have stopped budding it as well. These 2 oranges I would like to grow at Pemberton although I could put 1 in at Araluen Botanic Park which would ensure the future of this variety for people to access.

Hi Grant, you work at Araluen I think? I can let you have a seedling or two when they have grown on a bit - still a bit small. I'll contact you through Araluen.

Strange that so many people love Seville marmalade, but no-one grows it any more. I hope I have done my bit in keeping it going!

Violet_Cactus says...
Mine are growing well, Julie! Thanks again!
From Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - "As distinct from a regular orange as a tangerine or pomelo, these highly aromatic, bumpy-skinned wonders originated in China and India more than 3,000 years ago – their Indian name is "narayam", which means "perfume within". They were brought to Europe by Arab traders and groves of them were established in Andalucia, most notably around Seville, hence their name."

RECIPE
Seville orange curd

An easy, tangy curd that's as delicious spread on toast as it is spread thickly in the middle of a Victoria sandwich. Makes about three 240ml jars.

200ml Seville orange juice (ie from about 3 oranges), strained
Finely grated zest of 1 unwaxed navel orange
125g unsalted butter
400g granulated sugar
2 whole eggs plus 2 yolks, well beaten

Put the juice, zest, butter and sugar in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl over a pan of just-simmering water. As soon as the butter has melted, and the mixture is hot and glossy, pour in the beaten eggs through a sieve and whisk with a balloon whisk. Stir the mixture over a gentle heat until it's thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 12-15 minutes – a sugar thermometer should read 82-84C . Pour immediately into warm, sterilised jars and seal. Use within three or four weeks, and keep in the fridge once opened..

Violet, thanks for the recipe, it sounds interesting. I notice it says to use in 3-4 weeks.

I made lemon butter - which shouldn't be much different - and kept it in the fridge for months! Not the first time I've done this. It was fine, and several people ate it.

Hi Julie, I can't tell you first hand how long the Seville Orange Curd keeps as I have not tried making it myself, but I imagine it probably *would* keep longer than 4 weeks.

Hi Julie,
Could I grab some Seville Seeds too. We just cam back from Mexico and we are looking for a substitute for Naranja Agria which I have read up on. They use it a lot in the cooking from Merida. I think the orange Seville would be a good replacement.
If you have the time to send them to Brisbane that would be great. Are they hard to propagate?
Cheers
Paul

Not interested in the Seville Orange myself but loved just reading all the posts. Great story going on here. Good on you Julie for supplying the seeds and to everyone else who is helping keep the "Julie Tree" alive.

Yes I agree with Wazzbat. Julie has been very kind with her seeds. She has created a large seville orange julie-tree orchard albeit that it is fragmented into many different parts of the country. Perhaps the descendant trees should have their own distinctive botanical name of citrus aurantium julia.

Just discovered this amazing forum after starting a batch of marmalade from the smooth-skinned bitter oranges. These are the only ones I can buy here.
Am missing the rough-skinned ones, especially as in Sydney I'd raised 5 plants for 5 yrs from seeds from Seville and then had to give them away in order to move to Tassie.
Would love to start a Tassie branch of Julie's Rough Seville plants. Can you please put me on the list Julie?

Hi Julie
Could you put me on your list for some rough skinned Seville orange seeds please. My smooth seville has just cropped for the second time and I am curious to discover the difference rough sevilles make in marmalade. Thank you for your generosity.

I'm so excited to just find this forum at the right time.
July, I would REALLY appreciate some seeds too, if possible, and very happy to pay postage and packing etc.
I'm in Sydney, and make marmalade each year from the common smooth skinned 'seville' oranges, but I remember having marmalade in England made from the rought skinned ones, and it was wonderful.
I also belong to the local seed savers, and would also love to pass the Julia tree on. :-)

Am also watching the forum and have emailed you Julie a little time ago
for some seeds/orange. I had a friend
40 yrs ago who made the best marmalade in the world from Seville oranges that she collected from her friends place down the street. Am hoping to do the same in the future.

Wow, the Julie-tree orchard is spreading to Minnesota! At this rate it may even get back to Spain or retrace its migration through North Africa and then India/China where the sour orange is supposed to have originated.

I used to have a look at Jamie Oliver's forum now and then. Seems Seville oranges are available in Britain (probably from Spain?)as people were asking each other when they were ready. Odd that you can't seem to get them here, or the marmmalade isn't made commercially any more.

I noticed Engall's at Dural NSW also has it for sale. Guess where there's a market for it, growers supply. Only trouble is not all "Seville Oranges" sold are the real thing though Engalls has the Citrus aurantium.

Hi Julie, when your babies are ripe could I please have a go with your seeds? I used to make loads of marmalade with sevilles when we lived in the UK, I didn't eat it though because I was always on a diet!

My husband says he'll even buy me a special pot to grow them in!

Did you know that you can freeze the fruit to use later in the year? I used to buy bags of them in January and still be making marmalade in July.

Thanks Jo

Mary T replied on forum kindly offering me a seedling she had raised. It's now sitting in it's pot, enjoying spring rain, and I hope to pass seeds on to others in the future.
Thanks.

Thanks for giving a home to another Julie seedling Bernadette. I noticed that Bunnings at Artamon has "Seville Orange" trees for sale but the botanic name on the tag says Citrus sinensis, which I understand to be the sweet orange. Citrus aurantium is the bitter orange. Buyers beware.

That's probably a good idea Mary. Last time they cost I think $1.20, as the envelope was quite thick.

Not sure how I can let people know my address safely on the forum.

You can use the Poste Restante system if you go to the post office regularly. They will hold the mail for you for one month so you can give the address

Julie - a good way around this is to set yourself up a gmail account - it's easy and free (rather than use your regular email account) and get people to make contact with you there and post their mailing address to this account...

This way your home email account stays private.

Maybe Daleys might be interested in the seeds too....given the popularity and rareness of this orange...?! :)

Not really worried about my email account - I put it on forums in a safe way that's not easily picked up by spammers.

How bad is it to put your personal adress on a website? Who is likely to use it? These days it's all online spamming. I never get anything in the mail.

I haven't lived in Perth for several years now, but once upon a time you could go 4 wheeling in an area near Kwinana and the old railway yard. There where some derelict homesteads out there with some old citrus trees, looked like an orange but tasted bitter. There was also lemon, cotton, garlic, pomegranate and mulberry? I don't know if this area is still around but thought it may be of interest to anyone SOR.

Hi Virginia - you can buy or make a heat mat for seed propagation; the idea is to bring the temperature up to optimum level for seed germination.

Hi Julie, I am planting a group of citrus and wish to include a Rough Seville Orange. I was astonished to learn that they are so hard to source in Australia. Two days ago my search led me to this amazing forum. I would be most grateful to be able to obtain some seed and/or seedlings - so I will keep an eye out for your news of fruit. Apart from the new citrus trees I am planting, I have a lovely Meyer Lemon in a pot and access to a property with a 60+ year old Washinton Navel tree that produces prolifically each winter.

Hi Xiem, if you have any more seedlings spare I would really appreciate one. It would be great for marmalade and a good addition to my hop vines for putting into my home made witbier. Please let me know. kane(dot)marinko(at)gmail(dot)com. Really appreciate it.

Hi all; brilliant effort by everyone to keep the rough Seville going down under. I'm just preparing to establish a backyard espalier fruit orchard and would love to add home made marmalade to the mix. Does anyone anywhere around Melbourne/Geelong have a couple of seedlings to spare? Failing that some seeds would be greatly appreciated when available.
Cheers, Giovanni

Giovanni I still have a couple left BUT
the seedlings are very small (1") and I am east of Melbourne, a long way from you. If you think it is worth the trip, you may also be given the job of dropping off a seedling to Juanita who would probably be on your route.

I am really, really sorry, and more than a little embarassed - but it looks like no orange seeds this year. It has been a very strange year, weatherwise, and some of my fruits have not acted normally.

The Seville just refuses to mature and turn orange, and the seeds have not really developed. Apologies to all the people who have been patiently waiting, and maybe better luck next year.

Probably from a Citrus seller, at Bris Mkts, otherwise fruit shops that carry more unusual stuff. The two main types here are called smooth seville and rough seville, which are sometimes sold for making marmalade. Smooth is like a big orange grapefruit, Rough seville is maybe closer to the type you know, but the juice is not much different. Fruit harvest is just finishing in Vic, so you might still catch some now. It is also used in middle east cusine, I think it's called naranj ?

Hi everybody, I'm trying to find a Seville orange seedling to make my own marmalade. Does anyone have a Julie offspring they can spare? I can't seem to find one commercially anywhere. I'm happy to pay either cash now or marmalade when they come to fruition. Happy to pay transport costs as well.
Thanks and Regards

Hi Neil,

Julie has posted about this on another thread, and last year the fruits were affected by something and fell off without ripening, but is hoping to get a nice crop this winter so that she can save the seeds.

She's been incredibly generous with it, and has said that she will post a new thread in a few months once the seeds are ready.

After years (!) of submissions about marmalade - the best orange marm without doubt - finally Jakfruit mentioned his Cuban pork dishes. I'm from LA originally and living in Aus for most of my life, have always used the orange/lime/grapefruit/vinegar combo variously recommended as a replacement for Seville orange juice in many Mexican recipes, often for pork too. The food's great but it's not the same. For all you lucky Julie recipients, I suggest you start collecting Latin American recipes for the wonderful day your seedlings start to bear. So good.

I just spoke to Engall's and their Seville is citrus aurantium but smooth-skinned. The fantastically helpful guy on the phone says they haven't been able to source rough-skinned stock for years. He said that though the species is the same the fruit characteristics differ. They continue to try to source the rough-skinned variety but didn't seem hopeful since for their purposes, the strain had to be certified. Julie, I wonder how tortuous that certification procedure is - maybe you can be the Seville queen of Australia.

If anyone has managed to find rough-skinned Sevilles for sale, please say where. So many people have asked Julie for seeds for so long that I'm reluctant to add my name to the list. Furthermore, I turn 60 in a few months and I'd like to be able to try my cochinita pibil before the age pension. Still, better then than never, I guess. If anyone can help that would be great. Meanwhile, I'm going to try a smooth-skinned which hopefully will be closer to the real thing than my weird variously citric/vinegar combo.

lamboinoz, I wonder what they mean by 'certified'? I could send them a fruit and some foliage if this helped to identify it. Can you let me know their email address?

A man who read this forum visited me last summer and took some cuttings - I must contact him to see how they went.

My last two remaining seedlings are now around 75cm, and putting on new growth, so they are relatively quick growing. I planted my tree when I was around 60, so don't give up. I'm still planting trees at 75!

larissa, hopefully, I will have seeds in a few weeks, so watch the forum - I'll start a new thread.

Slightly off-topic, but I've been looking high and low in Melbourne to find the Rough Seville fruits, and no one seems to even know what they are.

The only thing I've found is a grocer in Dandenong Plaza that has the smooth Seville fruits every year. I have to admit that they do make a nice marmalade, but it's not anywhere near the depth of flavour that the real Seville has.

Anyone had any luck finding any rough Seville fruits from a grocer or farm?

Hi Julie,

I have 8 citrus trees in the ground, and one very lonely hole full of manure, vacant for months as I searched for a rough Seville.

I wonder if you would be kind enough to add my name to that long list?

I'm happy to compensate you or assist in any way.

This is my favourite marmalade recipe. Lots of work, but well worth the effort:

OK Phil - done. I need your address.

Hope I get enough seeds for everyone - so far I'm rationing individals to six seeds. Not being mean, but I would rather send a few to a lot of people than a lot to a few.

They germinated so well last time you should at least get four or five trees, which ought to keep everyone happy!

Phil, you're not wrong, that is a very time-consuming, complicated recipe. I use lots more water, and just soak the seeds overnight, cooking them in a little bag with the rest, then removing the bag. I thought people liked the slight bitterness - isn't that what makes Seville a bit different?

No takers for the seedling? OK I'll give it to my neighbour. Mike, I'm OK thanks but very tired from trip. The garden also needed lots of rescue remedy when I came home but still suffered some loss. :( I am philosophical. I mean to ask you if your guavas are big trees. My yellow cherry guava did well last season so now I'm ambitious for a 'real' guava that will grow in a pot. Sorry for the hi jack, guys.

Hi Mary, I've been looking for a rough Seville if it's not too late? I can buy a Seville from my local nursery with three mature fruit attached but the skin is smooth, not rough. Why is there two types of Seville oranges? I'll have to bring myself up tp speed and read the thread.
Did the Chinese liquorice seeds germinate?

John Mc the tree is yours. It's one of the original Julie Tree off springs and it's almost 21 months old. It's not as big as it should be because every time I go away it gets attacked by something but it recovers. I'm sure it will breathe a sigh of relieve to be planted in your holiday resort of a garden. No I have no luck with Chinese liquorice or you would have heard me bragging about it, to be sure :) I must confess I lost sight of the envelope for a while and didn't plant them straight away.

MaryT, I have a couple of small chinese liquorice plants that are dormant ATM. If and when they recover, you can have one, we'll know fairly soon.
EDIT: While your Dragonfruit plants are still small and it won't affect fruit production, they will respond to any kind of chicken manure, pile it on. Mine went beserk last year and had to cut them back by half, got very little fruit though.

Orchards of rough sevilles have now spread around the country from the Julie tree and I have been fortunate to receive some seeds and grow (and further scatter) seedlings thanks to Julie's kindness. But I don't think I have ever read about the history of the Julie tree - did you perchance once pocket a few seeds during a trip to Spain, Julie? Are we harbouring a family of illegal immigrants??

Thank you for your kind words Xiem. No, I just bought it from a small, independent nursery that has long since gone. All quite legal!

Still surprised at the number of people who want Seville - thought it had gone out of favour. Obviously not.

Hi Julie,
Did I hear something about SEEDS? And then losing all your email addresses!
Does this mean you need all our details again?
Just wanted to catch up on the status of the seed distribution and make sure I was still on the list. I hopped on the list back at #64 - was it only a year ago? Seems like it was a LOT longer. Waiting for oranges to fruit is like that I guess. Anxious to start a branch of Julies Rough Seville in Tasmania. My year-old Smooth Seville seedlings are doing very well in the polytunnel and have survived the winter. So I think I have a suitable environment. Marmalade making this weekend - I'm eager to take a look at some of the recipes posted here.

Hi Julie,

The seeds arrived in the post today.

They are already in a seed raising kit, on a heat mat, under a light. Looking forward to germination...

I have put a book of stamps into an envelope for you and will post next time I go to town, probably early next week.

Many thanks and cheers.

Really? It's in very good compost and the pot is on my kitchen window sill. I was careful not to let the seed dry out before or after planting and of course you sent it beautifully packed so it could not dry out in transit.

Hi Julie, my first one popped up today - shouldn't be long before the rest do too. Thanks for your generosity.
BTW, have the berry seeds arrived yet? Hopefully quarantine didn't confiscate them, but they were commercially treated and packed from the UK so I thought they'd be ok.

Yes, I'm afraid they might have sat in the mailbox for a week - I was away. They smelled a little musty but looked ok, didn't float and I'll just hope for even a small percentage of germination. Nothing so far but still hoping.

Got the new seeds today. Many thanks..

This time I split them with some in the seed raising kit on a heat mat and under lights in seed raising mix, and some in open trays on the verandah in potting mix.

Have marked November 17 as germination day...

Cheers.

Of the 10 seeds that received some unfortunate neglect before planting, the first seedling showed up at exactly 3 1/2 weeks, another 3 over the following 3 days, another a day later and I was happy at 50% germination, given the circumstances. Then yesterday at more than 4 1/2 weeks another showed up. Surely that's it... Anyone had seelings appear after more than a 5 week wait?

Most of my seeds are up - started at 4 weeks, now at nearly 10 weeks still a couple of stragglers. Thought the seeds might have perished so had a scratch around today - found some very small roots emerging from both seeds. So don't give up yet lamboinoz!

Thanks VF. I've now got 8 seedlings up and like you I scratched around a couple of days ago also finding the last seeds with emerging roots. Julie is a packer par excellence.

Janita, I got 3 single stems, 1 triple and 4 doubles. Here's something from another blog:

"They should be separated. Your most dominant seedling is most likely the clone seedling (the variety you're trying to propagate), and the less vigorous seedlings are usually the embryonic seedling(s) (those developing from the fertilization of the seed, thus being some unknown hybrid). Most citrus are polyembryonic, so you can get both clonal seedlings that will true to type, as they are an exact clone of the mother plant, as well as zygotic seedlings (those created by some other citrus pollen fertilizing the zygote). The Seville orange I believe is polyembroyonic and should have a clonal seedling (the bigger one) that is a clone of the mother tree. So, separate your seedlings and then mark them as the clone or the hybrid from each tree seed. You will see what your get as far as fruit goes in about 7 to 10 years, when they bear fruit. They might bear sooner, but usually seedlings will take much longer to bear fruit than their grafted counterparts."

My 30+ year old Seville tree has been incredibly prolific for years: 120 oranges this season (and it's a compact, small tree). A month ago I noticed the leaves had dropped off one branch. I'be been away since then and got home to find the entire tree bare and - presumably - dead.
Any ideas about what might have happened? I've done nothing unusual to or for it that I can think of.

diana that is the saddest story and if I'd know your tree was in Sydney I would have visited you before its demise. Hope you've saved seeds and have seedlings.

I have no idea why it should die suddenly but perhaps the brain trust on this forum can explain. Then again, it may not be dead.

My sympathies. My lemon tree went the same way. It was growth from seeds and my late grandfather selected this particular one from many seedlings and planted it. After a few years, it started to fruit prolifically. Then it was attacked by stink bugs and whilst I'm trying to keep that under control, it started to lose leaves, and then the whole tree lost all its leaves and died.

I think the stink bugs weakened the tree and some soil borne diseases finished it off. By any chance, is your tree on clay soil? I'm inclined to say root rot as well as there are no other signs of why the tree suddenly lost all its leaves. Also, proceeding the final death, there was a lot of rain in Brisbane that year.

If there are any fruits, I'd save them and replant the seeds or see if you can find any nodes/buds where you can transplant it onto another citrus.

Brain, what you describe may have happened the other way round. Plants under stress get attacked by bugs, more so than healthy plants.

So it may have already had problems before the stink bugs weakened it further.

Interesting lamboinoz and Jantina - your seeds seem to be showing more of the polyembronic features than mine (only 2x doubles). I wonder if climate plays a part when germinating, as to how many seedlings pop up, or is it something else?

Don't know VF, mine were germinated in a black pot on a sunny window ledge in my kitchen. The true leaves have that waist on them that kaffir leaves have, I'm assuming everyone else's has those leaves too.

Jantina, I germinated mine outside in a warm sheltered position in little tubes - they would have had more uneven temp's than yours, so that may be the difference. Most of mine are still in juvenile stage, but those that are more advanced are like what you're describing.

Mine are emerging at 40 days - indoors near a window but not especially warm, and it IS Tassie.
Biggest is just 2cm and at least 4 others showing.
Just need hubbie to keep them alive while I take a trip to Melb!
Very pleased with progress.

Some citrus are polyembryonic and parthenocarpic so come true from seeds. I dont know about the sevilles. I have found that some citrus grow very easily from cuttings.Wether they will do well with their own roots will be another matter.

Tracy says...
I have just found this forum after looking for information about growing seville oranges in NSW. I was lucky enought to find a tree in Bunnings of all places about six months ago, but then reading that there are different varieties, had to check what I had as want it for marmalade making. It is citrus sinensis and described as having a thick dimpled skin and prized for making marmalade, do hopefully I have the right one. Not being a very good gardener, I didn't read the label, was just so delighted to find the tree so was unaware that I have planted a tree that will grow to 8 meters in the chooks pen in a very small garden ! It is also planted in clay soil, which is all I have unfortunately. It seems to be doing really well, has nearly doubled in size and is now covered in fragrant flowers. Should it have flowered earlier? Would like to hear from anyone living nearby how their trees are going. If I had found this forum earlier, would have loved to carry on the Julie tree, but I think one is more than enough for my little back yard!

I think you have a sweet orange Tracy, whereas a lot of marmalade aficionados go for the bitter orange citrus aurantium. All depends on what you want. You could probably obtain some bitterness by using lemons with your oranges when you get around to making marmalade.

My Seville has never reached that height Tracy. It has stayed at around 2.5 metres, never been pruned.

I'm not in NSW, so could be different climate, but my orange flowered in spring, and now has small fruit.

Brain says...
If your label reads Seville, chances are, you are most likely to have the Australian Smooth Flat Seville version, as no one on the East coast sells the real deal - which is the Spanish Rough Skinned Seville. Which is also why we are very grateful for Julie's seeds as it is the currently the known source that is available to us folks on the 'retail' level. Though OLEA does have it listed as wholesale in WA.

I am also inclined to believe the label reading Citrus Sinensis is another error on the label. As for the description, as most people are not aware there are 2 types of Seville in existance in Australia, they would have simple 'googled' Seville orange and lifted the common phrase "thick dimpled skin and prized for making marmalade" - which is the standard description for Spanish Seville.

I think the best way to tell is to have a fruit at maturity and then you'd know for sure (from taste and texture). As it is flowering, so keep up the good work and I hope you get some fruit this year. It is hard to say whether it should flower now as this is dependant on a host range of factors like variety, climate, tree health etc.

Citrus generally does not like wet feet - in fact it can kill them (i.e. due to root rot), so clay is not prefered but some rootstock is more tolerant to clay. you really just have to monitor moisture levels and try not to overwater.

I would not be concerned about the 8m in height, as that's probably the maximum height but you can always prune it to a more desirable height.

I think if you google enough, there are plenty of people using all sorts of citrus to make marmalade, so I wouldn't be discouraged on whether you have the real Seville or not.

Thankyou for your replys and interesting information.
I think I will have to wait and see if I get some fruit this year and keep my fingers crossed it is a bitter Seville, although it sounds unlikely! Being from the UK, Ido love my bitter marmalade. We have a green grocer that does get bitter Seville oranges in, and I eagerly await their arrival. This year I made 48 jars so hopefully they will last 12 months! Unfortunately, a big supermarket has opened up right near to him and I know business isn't going too well so Im not sure about getting them in the future. I may be chasing up a Julie tree after all!

Yes you can buy the seville fruit at some smaller greengrocers Tracy, around August I think. They are the commercial smooth skinned variety but they make good bitter marmalade.

Also I would suggest if and when you get your next batch of rough seville oranges, save plenty of seeds and grow them or do a seed swap with fellow members. They may not be "Julie" tree but some genetic diversity may not be a bad thing. If you'd like, we will call the future seedlings "Tracy" tree. LOL.

Also, if you wouldn't mind asking the grocer where he gets his stock from, i.e. the farm. Would be good to know where those trees are from and potentially get some mature budwood, which Daley Fruit might even consider propagating and selling to us.

Julie, I'm outside Houston Texas. I think I have Seville Oranges on my tree that was labeled as a Navel Orange. Is it possible that the Seville was used as root stock and the graft didn't take? There are about 50 seeds in each orange and the fruit is sour no matter when I pick it. The fruit lasts on the tree for months. I pick them as I need them.
Anyhow, I'd love your recipe for Orange Marmalade... I don't like what I'm finding on the cooking Web sites.
Thank you. Carol

Hi guys,

I too found this forum through a google search!

Just returned from my honeymoon in Seville where I fell in love with the tree. I live in the northern suburbs of WA, is there any chance I could get a couple of seeds/seedlings from one of you?

My wife and I are trying to recreate an Andalusian patio at home, and it won't be complete without the gorgeous Seville orange tree!

My understanding is no.

I did some reading on citrus seeds to fruiting. And apprently, there is a thing called 'node count' and it is an indicator of maturity. The paper suggested that until the plant reached certain node count (or time), it won't flower and fruit.

However, being grafted on a established tree would mean it might probably grow faster, hence reaching the node count a bit quicker.

Hello,

I am about to harvest my first crop of what I am pretty certain is a seville orange tree I bought three years ago. I think I have about 12 oranges. I would be happy to send pictures of the tree and the fruit to confirm.

After reading this forum I realise how hard is to find some and how is possible to replicate from seed, so I will try to do that. I am happy to share some if anybody is interested.

I'd say arif's pics show a smooth seville, young plant with smaller fruit. The blog pics of rough seville are good, but often leaves have a big petiole, wheras smooth has thin petiole.

I recall reading the Australian smooth seville is Seville x sweet orange, so both are quite similar in appearance.

below are links to some pictures of both and you will have to make your own judgement.

I think the oblong flat bottom is the only give away.

Hi,

I have three of Julie's Seville seed progeny to give away. They are all in 16 cm pots and range from 120 mm to 140 mm high, green and healthy. They have been on the edge of the verandah, facing north, to harden off for several months.

I don't want to post them, as the probability of damage would be very high.

I live near Bega and go to Canberra often. If you want one and can collect in that region, please email me directly: phil DOT chadwick AT internode DOT on DOT net.

Hi Orange lovers,

I'm new to Australia and have been looking for a specific type of orange which has the characteristics of Seville Orange. I’ve tried some nurseries and even some Orange Gardens North of Swan Valley, but it was not what I was looking for.

Going through all posts, I can see how much effort you guys have done and am very happy to see so many people keen and interested in Seville Oranges !

As there are so many different types, is there any chance for me to have a look at the trees before asking you for seeds, I am not sure if Seville is exactly what I'm looking for, the pictures look alright, does the blossoms smell good during spring, and the fruits remain on the tree for long time without going bad ?

Cheers
Ali

Do you know the name of the type you are looking for, or the country it's from.
Basically there are 2 main types of seville here. Smooth Sevile has grapefruit like leaves and fruit(orange skin).
Rough Seville has pointed spear shaped leaves with a wide petiole(leaf base).
The leaves of rough are very fragrant.

There is also Bergamot orange in Australia.

Thanks jakfruit;

According to the above website, most Probably, I'm looking for bittersweet orange, which is found in Afghanistan.
We also have it in Iran and use the juice as salad dressing, boil it and reduce it to a souring agent for cooking and most interesting, we use the blossoms for flavouring tea. Also you can use the extract of the blossoms for flavouring ice-cream, cake and etc.

We call it “Naranj” or “Narenj”, find more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitter_orange

I too am interested in obtaining some C. aurantium seeds next spring, so this is by way of alerting Julie - Our Lady of Seville Oranges - that I'll be emailing her a begging letter!

Canto, no need to beg! Happy to oblige anyone who wants to have a go.

BTW, AliK from above thread came and picked up a three year old seedling a few weeks ago. From his description, I'm pretty sure he got what he wanted - all the characteristics seemed to fit.

Hi Julie, I have been searching for years for a seville orange and only now realise that it is the rough Seville I want (for marmalade).
I too would love some seeds of C. uranium next spring.

My seedling tree will produce rough skinned Seville oranges as the seeds come true to type but be prepared to wait around 5 years or so for fruit.
To plant seeds just wait till first month of spring passes then put seed in prepared pot which has been kept warm outside, no need to peel outer skin off seed, keep soil in pot slightly moist not damp and don't put in direct sun until leaves appear, might take a couple of weeks to germinate as citrus love warmer weather

I was told that it could take up to 7 years to bear fruit – but if you graft it onto a more vigorous rootstock (rough lemon?), it should bear much sooner than that!

I would just grow stock from Seville seeds and graft on to them...the trick to get fruit sooner is to take bud wood from a tree that has reached fruit bearing age.
I have quite a few multi grafted citrus trees including lemon,lime & grapefruit..Imperial, Emperor and Japanese Seedless mandarin, Tangelo, Red Grapefruit and Valencia plus about 8 other orange trees.

Hi Julie,
I hope you're doing well, it's always heartwarming when your tree fruits for the first time specially if grown from seed.
I took one of your trees 2 years ago, around June, I took the bigger one of the two and I am assuming above is the smaller one blossoming now.
Unfortunately my tree has not progressed much, it has grown taller, but not much luck with any fruits yet,
Ant advise on what to do and what not,
Cheers

Alik you may need to wait a year or 2 more as your tree is a seedling so just be patient, never over water or over fertilise, keep the soil moist not damp and use about an inch of mulch, put some snail bait around the trunk as snails and slugs love eating the new growth at night.

Thanks Adrian,
According to Julie, the seedling that I took was 3 years old at 2013, so by now it should be around 5 years old. It's already meter+ tall. I haven't use fertilisers and its planted in a pot, will update a photo during the weekend.
Can I graft a branch to another citrus tree that is fruiting, for example a dwarf lemon tree that I have ?
TIA

AliK says..." I haven't use fertilisers".

Well, that could be your problem, as citrus are fairly heavy feeders. It would be OK to give it some fertiliser now. Dynamic lifter is good, plus a good dose of Seasol. Citrus in pots can be given small amounts of fertiliser throughout the growing season.

You should see some improvement in growth as the weather warms.

Am trying to put a vid together on grafting/budding as the visual is far better than text.
All the grafts I did in early autumn are now starting to grow, one of them is a Japanese seedless mandarin (delicious) I budded on to a branch of a lemon tree I have..will post some pics in a day or 2 of my grafting.
Follow Julie's advice about fertilising.

yes just graft as long as your tree is not dormant.

I grafted tahiti lime onto my pomelo 4 months ago, together with fingerlime and it allready has 2 fruits marble size now.

Budding isn't a succes for me but grafting goes very well.

Hi guys, have been looking for a real Seville orange tree for a while now. My family is Originally from Spain and the smell of the fully grown trees in the old part of Seville is something I'd like to recreate for my family in my house here.

I'm very happy to put in the work and time needed to grow my tree!

Can I buy some seedlings or seeds off one of you to plant in our new house?

Anyway, my aunty just passed on an old marma recipe to me and I am hankering for some Seville seeds, would you be able to send me some seeds too? I will email you separately also :).

Rudy, I can't think what you would do with a whole row of Seville oranges! One tree alone is enough for a lot of people.

Why not mixed citrus - lemon, Navel, mandarin, Seville, maybe tangelo?

Email me at julwood at iprimus dot com dot au if you want to pick up a small Seville tree, flowering now. I live in the hills.

Hi again everyone, I have many seedlings started maybe 80 or so and will post periodically on their progress and can arrange somehow if people want any of them but won't be available until they get about a metre high, these are 100% rough skinned Seville seedlings which will produce from 4-5 years of age.
Here is a pic of some seedlings about a week old.

I'd like to thank JULIE who sent me some seeds last spring - my apologies I'm so late to email, but a family crisis intervened.
Australia Post was rough with the envelope so the plastic bag broke and the seeds got rather dry. Miraculously 4 did sprout, though very late and growing slowly, but now it looks like my babies should make it.
When they are a bit bigger and stronger I'll offer the extra on to others.

Someone has since told me they saw some rough skinned seville oranges for sale at a Farmer's market in Lilyfield in Sydney last September. Looked the real deal - only small quantity available, sold as Seville only for marmalade. So I'll check it out later this year and post if it looks good.
Thanks again for the seeds Mary. :-)

Adrian says...
Gender of trees is associated with the flower rather than the fruit. Usually most flowers are perfect, meaning they have both male and female parts; an orange tree has a perfect flower. Some fruits need seeds to make growth hormones so that the fruit will develop normally, however there are a few fruit which develop without seed such as Oriental persimmons and navel Oranges. These trees are very susceptible to stress as stress causes the fruit to drop. So seediness of fruit is a function of the type of fruit, rather than the gender of the fruit.

Hi again, today is Nov 20 and a very hot day too, here are the seeds I mentioned a few months ago, we had a very slow start to spring but now the very warm weather has arrived, the seeds have sprouted and are well on their way, I will pot them all individually as I go and weed out the stragglers. All these seedlings are definitely rough skin seville seedlings.

Those little seedlings look very happy Adrian.
I'm curious to know if you can tell by looking at the leaves that they are the rough skinned Seville, (rather than the smooth skinned Pomelo cross) or is it just from knowing the parent tree?

Adrian the little seedlings look promising, still interested if any are available, I keep looking at my pictures from Spain and wonder why the rest of the world does not realize what a great ornamental tree they are with the added benefit for anyone wanting to make marmalade!

We grew both rough and smooth skinned Seville at the same time from seed, the smooth skinned seedlings had a winged petiole "e;stalk"e; on the leaves but the rough did not. I have no idea if this is a consistent characteristic for the varieties.

allybanana, I would have said the opposite, ie smooth has large grapefruit type leaves with a thin petiole, and rough has pointy spearhead shaped leaves with a large winged petiole, and strong bergamot scent.

I have a smooth skinned Seville (Citrus Paradiso) that is now three years old and almost 2 metres high. I wonder could I graft a rough skinned Seville onto it if I can can source stock _ does anyone know?
I already have more than 40 fruit and nut trees on my 3/4 acre so am running out of space and looking more to grafting for other varieties.

In regards to the leaf shape, I remember our guide in Seville showing us the leaf of what they call the bitter orange and pointed out the small leaf before the main leaf and this is how he said you recognised a bitter orange!

I could easily be wrong about who has the winged leaf stalk. I was going from memory. Mary T's photo 2nd August 2011 this this thread is of Seville grown from Julie seed and described as rough Seville, this also suggests I am wrong.

I have a tree grown from seed taken from a very feral orange tree growing by the roadside. It has smallish fruit (about 4 cm), long thorns (5-6cm ouchy!) and a rambling habit. I have just pruned it back to about 1.2m high, mainly to get rid of the gall wasp. It does get the usual bugs etc, but the fruit is deliciously tart and makes a great marmalade. Does anyone know if this is a Seville or a throw-back to something else.

Hi Bruce. Could they be kumquats?

When I used to live in Wollongbar, quite a few people had kumquat trees. They were pretty common and they were usually used to make jam/marmalade (we affectionately named 'the bite').

Hi Bruce and Brad, in Alstonville the most likely roadside Citrus is a Bush Lemon or a Finger Lime. A photo of plant or fruit will help ID.

Hi Brad, thanks for that. No, they are not kumquats, the wrong size and shape. They are an orange variety of some sort. I like kumquats for marmalade, although they are a lot of work. These have an even more intense bite than the civilised kumquats I have tasted. Cheers.

Hi Bruce. 4 cm diameter seems a bit too small to be a 'Seville' orange in my opinion, so a kumquat was just the first alternative that I thought would be most likely.

Another suggestion could be Citrus (or Poncirus) trifoliata. It is a very common root-stock for grafting. These match your description so far and a few identifiers could be:

* the tree is known to be deciduous.
* leaves form in clusters of three (hence its name, trifoliata).
* the fruit can have a downy texture.

Here is a link to a blog about them at 'Horticulture by Heart'. It has some very good pictures of mature trees with leaves, flowers and fruit.

www.aubreecherie.com/horticulturebyheart/2009/09/plant-poncirus-trifoliata/

Outside of that, I don't have any more suggestions. Being a seedling tree, from what would be expected to be another seedling tree ... etc, anything is possible and it may well be from 'Seville' parentage (or not).

Hi again Brad. I had looked at the trifoliata, it has a bit in common esp. in the thorn department and size of fruit. But the leaves are not in threes, the fruit isn't downy at all (just your standard orange skin), and it's not deciduous. Maybe it doesn't get cold enough here.

Will try and get a pic.

Thanks.

Hi jakfruit etiquette, Thanks for your interest.

It certainly has a lot in common with the rough lemon except for the fruit. It doesn't have the color or rough skin of a lemon. The flesh and skin are typically orange, and isn't rough or bumpy. Just looks like a standard orange but smaller. Very bitter though.

Thanks, Bruce

Hi all,

I took a trip in the countryside and eventually found the tree under a mass of lantana and guava.

Having had a look at this original more mature tree I think the consensus will be that it is a Seville variety.

There were no fruit obvious, but closer inspection in the waist high grass revealed quite a few fruit still connected but on the ground. The size ranges from about 5-7cm as shown in the pics.

Thorns were not as obvious as on my three year old tree, but still there!

Pretty sure it will be a Seville. Probably has a botanical name of Ferrelus Sevillus (hah). Any other ideas?

Thanks, Bruce

I would say it is either an odd Bush Lemon or a Rangpur Lime. Both of these are Lemandarins ie Lemon X Mandarin.
More likely Rangpur, which has a tart mandarin taste.

Thanks for all the feedback folks. I guess the jury is still out at the moment, I have googled the suggestions and nothing seems to match 100% so far.

The comment re petiole is interesting. Are you saying Kerry that you would expect to see a wide (flat) petiole if it were Seville?

Does the tendency for some fruit to hang below the tree on longish stems, sometimes with multiple fruit clustered on the same stem ring any bells? Both the 'original' tree and my seedling have this tendency. Or is that just down to poor / nonexistent pruning?

Thanks, Bruce.

Rangpur Lime and Bush Lemon both have pink/red new growth tips on emergent leaves ( as do Lemons and a few others ).
That would eliminate most other Citrus.
Some close up photos of leaves might help.

Hi all, been waiting to get some pics from my tree. So I have emergent leaves which are pinkish red in color, and another poor shot of some adult leaves.

I'm thinking that jakfruit etiquette is pretty close with the suggestion of Rangpur Lime.

I have asked a friend at NSW DPI to give me an opinion.

Thanks, Bruce

8 years is way too long to wait but that's the great unknown growing from seed and not grafting, I grow from seed and when 8 months old bud graft a bud from a fruit bearing rough skin Seville tree and after 2 years of that graft growing it will fruit.
The 2nd pic is the bud graft I did in Dec 2016 and the 1st pic I just took (June 28, 2017) which shows a few months of summer growth, when spring returns (September) it will really take off and will flower and fruit in September 2018.

Hi Julie. I received some seeds from you about 3 years ago. I think! After germinating well, they spent 2 years in pots and did really well, growing to about 80cm tall. Gave a couple to family and planted 1 in the ground in my orchard about 12 months ago. It just took off and is now about 2m tall, and it's been a pretty dry, hard year. It has never faltered! Not sure when it will flower, but it's heading into its 4th year, and it's definitely big enough to hold fruit! Time will tell.

Hi Julie , You are right , Yes you have kindly sent me 10 seeds and 9 of them grew , but I don't know what happend and few month after they grew I found their stem were cut , I thought a bird or possom has cut them . My current tree is about 14 years old and one if my friends gave it to me when it was about 56 years old in a pot. Until last year it did not blossom ,but I had 4-5 fruits last year and this year I think I habd about 20-30 fruits. I think it is rough skin .

So glad to hear all these trees are doing well. I had never grown an orange from seed until 8 years ago when I started sending seeds to people on this forum.

Azar, those cut off seedlings are a mystery. I have lost soft veggie seedlings to slugs and snails, but not firm seedlings like S. orange.

The cut off Citrus seedlings are most likely snails or more likely Hawkmoth larvae (cutworm). If you see Citrus seedlings cut off about 1 cm above the soil, you can dig around shallowly to find a large caterpillar.

Azar your seeds arrived today thank you very much. You didn't put a return address on the envelope but if you give it to me I will be very happy to send you some stamps to pay for the postage. I'll get busy now putting the seeds (still moist) into some seed-raising mix. I'll label them Seville d'Azar. :)

Hi Azar the first (hopefully not the last) of your seville seeds has sprouted and the seedling is about to stick its head up above ground to welcome the impending Spring. 40 days since planting the seed.
