Orange - Valencia Seedless (Grafted) 8/10

Jessica1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3745 days 5hrs

Comments: -

Inherited in a sad way when we bought the property. Initially thought it was a lemon as the plant was growing prolifically from below the graft untion. Once water shoots removed, and after 7 years it has proved to be a seedless valencia. Fruit not as attractive or sweet as Washington, but a good marmalade fruit. Not an ideal planting position as below larger trees in a southerly aspect, but still crops well. A toughy.

Orange - Washington Navel (Grafted) 10/10

Jessica1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3745 days 5hrs

Comments: -

Bought 15 years ago and only put in soil 7 years ago. Wonderful fruiting, bumper crop each year, no diseases or pests - including gall wasp - remarkable as it sits next to a lemonade lemon which gets quite badly affected. Very occassionally fed, when I remember. Wonderful shape with no pruning. Fruit is much sought after by neighbours who like sweet, juicy, no spray fruit.
