Orange - Smooth Seville 10/10

Jan4's Edible Fruits
Update: 2361 days 15hrs

Comments: -

This is a lovely little tree. The fruit is essential if you like the flavour of real marmalade. The marmalade always sets beautifully because of the high pectin content and has a fragrant sourness that other oranges don't have. It is too sour to eat, but you can use it the same way you use lemons in a variety of drinks and recipes. It makes a very good Orange Delicious pudding.

The tree also looks beautiful in the garden. Mine is still quite young but has been vigorous right from the start. I should probably remove more of the fruit as it has probably set too many. I have already removed quite a lot earlier in the season. A generous fruiter! I have never actually weighed the harvest but there's more than I can use.

Australian Round Lime (Grafted) 9/10

Jan4's Edible Fruits
Update: 2361 days 16hrs

Comments: -

This tree was slow to start growing but has been very hardy and productive. Lots of fruit and it makes a great lime pickle. The flavour is similar to finger limes, in fact, I think it is better than some varieties of finger lime I have tasted. It fruits when there is not a lot of other citrus ready ,which is useful.   I use it in a variety of recipes. I will post a better photo of the tree when it has some fruit on, but it is middle of winter and it's not doing much just now.
