There are very few fruits as beautiful as the blood orange and very few Blood Oranges as beautiful as the Sanguinelli (Citrus x sinensis 'Sanguinelli')! Just like you'd expect, the juice is blood red! It has a sweet-tart flavor that is excellent to drink fresh or when it is used in cooking.
Enjoy glistening white and heavenly fragrant blossoms a bit later in the season than other Blood Oranges, drawing pollinators and admirers, the scent fills your home if you grow these indoors! The late harvest of juicy oranges replaces the blooms and then your tree is a knockout specimen! Hailing from Spain, Sanguinelli has some of the most attractive red-tinged flesh of any orange on the market!
Like ornaments hanging amongst the deep evergreen glossy leaves on this small - medium-sized tree, these fruits bring great prices at farmer's markets. But that means you'd have to part with your bounty, which might be harder than you think once you taste these beauties!
Sanguinelli does great outdoors, where it never outgrows its bounds and fits into the smallest garden without a problem. Plant these self-pollinating trees as a standout specimen and accent tree, or use them in long hedgerows along or with other citrus varieties for privacy and screening that serves up healthy nuggets of goodness!
Also, growing well in pots in a sunny room during the winter! Northern climates are delighted to have these as fantastic porch and patio trees for the summer, giving seating areas and poolside wonderful looking greenery, then bringing them indoors! Great in greenhouses as well, they’re low care and have low watering needs in-ground or in pots!
Orange trees need the full sun to do their very best flowering, and therefore fruiting. Preferring moderate moisture and drying out between waterings, prune after fruiting when needed.

Sanguinelli Blood Orange trees are very popular and we expect them to sell out fast, so don't wait to order yours at NatureHills.com!
