Vaniglia Sanguigno Blood Orange Tree

Availability: Out of stock

New things come around every year. Sometimes it's the simple pleasures that keep you coming back, though. But the Vaniglia Sanguigno Blood Orange Tree (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck 'Vaniglia Sanguigno') has been grown in Italy for centuries and never seems to go out of fashion, and we're sure you'll see why.

The exterior hides Pink Grapefruit-colored flesh that has such low acid content that all you taste is sweetness! Vaniglia has a hint of vanilla to it too, which just makes the flavor all the richer. Use the juice for drinks, cooking, baking, and candies. Since the acid is so low, it doesn't have to sit as long to ripen out the tart, it just gets sweeter.

Vaniglia Sanguigno is an easy orange to grow in a citrus-friendly growing zone. It is prized in the Middle East as a dessert Orange and will be just as prized in your home!

Planting and Application:

The glossy evergreen foliage and mid-sized canopy make these fantastic accents and privacy anywhere in the sun, creating hedgerows for privacy or groupings for enclosing seating areas from the world. These are perfect trees for edible landscaping, any front yard benefiting from the lovely effect they have shading your yard or garden beds.

Let the fragrant white blossoms perfume your outdoor rooms or porch planters while butterflies and bees buzz about, lured in by their scent. Prune smaller and easily keep at a manageable size so that even Northern gardeners can enjoy these as summer patio plants and houseplants throughout the winter months.

  • Medium-Sized Fruit With Pink Flesh

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Citrus trees need full sun to do their best and they can stand up to more than 6 hours of direct sunlight a day with ease. Keep them in fertile, slightly acidic, very well-drained soil but allow them to dry out a bit between waterings, especially when potted. Prune after fruiting if needed.

  • Full Sun
  • Well-Drained Acidic & Fertile Soil
  • Prune After Fruiting
  • Mid-Sized Tree & Can Be Maintained Smaller
