Question: The Cara Cara is not strictly a blood orange. True blood oranges like the Tarocco and Arnold have anthocyanin pigments that give them their colour. Anthocyanins are the same nutritious pigments that give many fruits (blueberries mulberries etc) their dark colouring. The pigment that gives the Cara Cara it's colouring is lycopene which is the same pigment found in tomatoes and watermelon. Both pigments are very important in the human diet so I suggest getting both a blood orange and a Cara Cara.

North American Tulepo Tree that produces edible fruits that can be used as a substitue for limes. Seeds were easy to germinate. It is a large tree that grows along river banks so it might not be suitable for most gardens.


The fruit is produced in small clusters of 2 - 3, it is up to 4 centimeters long, has a thick, juicy, very acidic flesh and contains a single seed.It can also be used to make a refreshing drink.

Dwarf Orange - Washington Navel 10/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 49 days 7hrs

Comments: -

I have tried growing this variety previously with no luck, however I now understand that my efforts were doomed to failure because I was trying to grow them in the wrong location. A different home and an appropriate location should serve the new tree well.

 April 2015. This tree is now going full steam ahead and I am really hopeful that I will see some fruit on it this season. It is now significantly larger with a lot of new growth.

 June 2016 A successful crop of 30 really sweet navels. I feel happy now :) I can't believe how juicy and sweet this crop is compared to shop bought fruit.

Dec 2016 This tree is now 2 metres  tall and has a great crop on it. Really looking forward to harvest time next year.

 A couple of things that I think have contributed to the harvest over the past 2 years: Clearing the ground of grass out to the drip line, mulching heavily, fertilising at the change of each season and regular watering from the first blossom.

May  2017. A crop of over 50. Interestingly the tree has provideed 2 crops, one to ripen earlyJune and one to ripen about a month later as a result of a second flush of blossom

Dec 2017 A similar sized crop to its last one. Wonderful fruit

Mandarin - Emperor (Grafted) 8/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 49 days 7hrs

Comments: -

This is the second of my two mandarine trees, the other being an Imperial. Unknown rootstock as it was not identified on the tag.June 2016. This tree set as first fruit last season and in a couple of weeks will be picking its second crop.

It has not been as fruitful as the Imperial even though it is in the same environment and gets the same care. Nor  is it as vigorous however this may be the result of differing root stock. Its advantage is that  it will harvest later than the Imperial and thereby extend the season. Usual citrus management means that all my citrus are dealt with at the same time.

Dec 2017 A small crop of tasty sweet fruit. The tree suffers nitrogen deficiency more than the other citrus. A regular dose of iron chelate fixes that up

Lemon - Eureka (Grafted) 9/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 49 days 7hrs

Comments: -

This lemon has been bought to replace my Myer should it turn its toes up

Dec 2016. Well, this little tree has certainly shown up the Meyer lemon this year. Its first year in a pot, and it has several nice lemons coming on. It did do this job of the Myer with it having its best season yet.

Growing trees in pots certainly means increased vigilence with the management of the tree and its environment. Mulching, increased watering, more regular  fertilising  as opposed to fertilising at the change of season in addition to regular citrus care

Dec 2017 A small crop of nice tart lemons

Dwarf Orange - Lanes Late (Grafted) 9/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 49 days 8hrs

Comments: -

Because I enjoy eating navel oranges so much I am looking to get as long a fruit in season as I can. I now have Washington Navel, Navelina and Lanes Late Navel. So that should wrap the season up pretty well. April 2015: New growth and small flowers. The growth will stay but the flowers will be taken off.

June 2016.This tree has struggled since it was planted and I have now removed it from the ground and placed it in the tub and treated it with root rot killer. It has taken a while to recover (Dec 2016) but is now doing well, puttiing on new growth.

Time to go back in the ground

Dec 2017 It is still in its pot but this year has set fruit.. about a dozen.

Dwarf Lemon - Meyer (Grafted) 10/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 49 days 8hrs

Comments: -

We have had Myer lemons for many years and have found them to be a much valued addition to the garden and kitchen, easy to take care of and incredibly productive. Their only issue is their susceptibility to fruit fly which can be beaten by bagging the fruit

March 2015. The tree has gone though another flowering and is setting fruit at the moment. This was the habit of the one we had at our other home.. flower spring and autum, setting fruit each time. April 2015: A lot of fruit has now set and another crop of flowers has appeared.

June 2016. This year the tree has been a disappointment to me. It flowerd heavily percent less than a handful of fruit. It seemed to suffer last winter, however it seems now that it is slowly recovering from whatever was giving it problems. There is now a small flowering taking place now

Dec 2017 Huge crop this year for  such a small tree

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 49 days 8hrs

I had this growing in our last home and it was a wonderful tree and a great bearer of sweet juicy fruit that survived on the tree well.When we moved into our new home I decided to give this another go.

The original did take a long to fruit, I think about 7 years and I had to threaten it with removal before it behaved

June 2016  We had a large crop of smallish fruit so this coming season the fruit will require heavy thinning

December 2016 This tree is doing exceptionally well. I thinned the crop quite heavily for this year as there are so many immature fruit it that I couldn't see it holding them all. I am aldo sure that ckearing the ground of competing grass to the drip line, muclhing and fertilising at the change of each season has made a big  difference.

May 2017. What a great tree this tree is! Over 100 beautiful mandys harvested this year. What a goer!

Dec 2017 Not as big crop for 2018 but should be a good one

Dwarf Orange - Navelina (Grafted) 10/10

Update: 49 days 8hrs

I tasted one of these in Atherton earlier this year and was most impressed by both the fruit and its flavour

June 2016 I had 1 piece of fruit this year in April. More orange inside than the Washington and amazingly sweet

Dec 2016 This tree is going great guns and it has a nice crop on it. It seems as though it will be slightly ahead of the Washington navel by about 2 weeks as it was last year

April 2017 This year the tree has been heavily hit with gall wasp whilst the other citrus have missed out entirely

Dec 2017 This is a great tree.. over 40 young oranges on it for 2018 harvest.Last year's crop was wonderful

How does the taste compare to Washington Navels?
Slicko says... [371 days 13hrs ago]
Hi Swoon, I am of the opinion that it is seeter than the WN, probably better than it. The home grown fruit of both varieties leaves shop bought fruit for dead... Mick
