Moro Blood Orange Tree
A Beautiful Orange with a Delicious Unique Flavor
Moro Blood Orange is a variety of orange with crimson, blood-colored flesh. The fruit is smaller than an average orange, and its skin is usually pitted, but can be smooth. It is known for its high content of Vitamin C, Potassium and Carotene. It is easy to peel, medium-size and is usually seedless.
Culinary Chefs who want to add visual appeal and outstanding flavor to salads, sauces, appetizers, and desserts, are making this orange quite popular. Deliciously sweet and slightly sour, the Moro Blood Orange offers a raspberry overtone and tends to be slightly less acidic than other oranges. By the time the fruit matures, the flesh is deep red.
For best results, place your dwarf citrus tree on a porch or patio in the spring, summer and early fall. As winter approaches and temperatures begin to drop in the thirties, bring your tree indoors and place in a window with a western or southern sun exposure.
It prefers full sun, fertile, but well drained soil, and moderate water.
Grow Them Anywhere!
If you live in a colder climate, simply plant them in a container. Bring your tree indoors near a sunny window, and let the intoxicating citrus scent brighten your home during cold winter days.
