Blood oranges are called the ‘connoisseur’s citrus’ because they are sweet and highly flavored with a hint of strawberry and raspberry aftertaste.

Vainiglia Sanguigno is an acidless sweet orange with a pink flesh pigmented by lycopene, a carotenoid. The tree is small to medium-sized at maturity with a round form. The round fruit is medium in size, seedy, with a smooth orange rind of medium thickness. The flesh adjacent to the albedo is pink, and this pink pigmentation often extends to the interior of the fruit, especially in the vicinity of the section membranes. Because of its lack of acidity, the fruit can be eaten as early as late fall or early winter. The fruit is very juicy and is especially prized by Middle-Eastern people.
Our Dwarf Skaggs Bonanza tree is a large navel orange tree that bears more fruit than the Washington variety and ripens 2 weeks earlier and an 8:1 solids to acid ratio about a week earlier on average than Washington navel. Bonanza also reaches color break ahead of Fisher navel, but it reaches an 8:1 solids to acid ratio after Fisher during most seasons. The Skaggs Bonanza fruit is good sized with a very thin rind compared to Washington, Newhall, Fisher and Lane Late navel orange varieties.
Rhode Red Valencia was discovered in 1955 in a grove near Sebring, Florida, by Paul Rhode, Sr., of Winter Haven. Some budwood was put on sour orange stock which caused dwarfing and some on rough lemon which produced large, vigorous, productive trees. In 1974, 5 trees were accepted into the Citrus Budwood Registration Program but there was no budwood free of exocortis and xyloporosis viruses. The fruit equals ‘Valencia’ insoluble solids, excels ‘Valencia’ in volume of juice, is less acid, has slightly less ascorbic acid, but has a far more colorful juice due to its high content of cryptoxanthin, a precursor of vitamin A which remains nearly stable during processing.
Midknight trees are reported to be slower growing and more frost-susceptible than Valencia. In Lindcove, California, the fruit reach legal maturity in late January/ early February. The solids-to-acid ratio of Midknight fruit is higher in April than Delta and Olinda due to lower average acidity. Midknight fruit in Lindcove California also have firmer and thicker rind than Delta or Olinda Valencia selections, but lower juice content than Delta and Olinda possibly due to thickness of rind (Arpaia Delta strain trial).
Cara Cara navel orange, a mutation that occurred on a Washington navel orange tree, was discovered in 1976 at Hacienda Cara Cara in Venezuela. Most tree and fruit characteristics reflect its Washington navel orange ancestry, but the flesh is deep pink, similar to the darkest of the red grapefruit varieties. This rich color is due to the presence of lycopene, a carotenoid in the same family as beta carotene. Rarely, the normally green-leafed trees will produce variegated-leafed twigs. These twigs, when left to grow and fruit, may produce fruits with striped rind.
Sanguinelli is a late midseason blood orange variety from Spain. The variety originated as a limbsport of Doblefina which came to light about 1950. The tree is small to medium in size, spineless, and very productive.
Olinda Valencia (VI 242) originated as a chance seedling of Valencia orange found by H. J. Webber and L. D. Batchelor of the Citrus Research Center in the yard of O. Smith at Olinda in 1939 and released in 1957. Since the fruit and tree characteristics of Olinda Valencia are considered to be indistinguishable from Frost Valencia, the chance seedling is now thought to have a nucellar origin and to be genetically the same as Frost Valencia.
Pineapple orange originated from seedlings planted about 1860 near Citra, FL. Its fruit are medium large, somewhat flattened on both ends, with a moderately thick, smooth peel that develops good orange color under cool night conditions. Juice color and quality are very good. It usually contains 15-25 seeds. ‘Pineapple’ matures about Thanksgiving in the Valley. Unfortunately, the name ‘Pineapple’ has been used in Texas to designate seedy oranges, which includes both ‘Parson Brown’ and true ‘Pineapple’ orange. Basically, if the orange in question matures well before Thanksgiving, it isn’t ‘Pineapple’.
Navelina or Dalmau (VI 532) was originally called Smith’s Early at the Citrus Research Center when it was selected as a budsport selection from the Rubidoux Tract variety block about 1910. ‘Smith’s Early’ was exported to Spain in 1933 from the Citrus Research Center in Riverside CA. This variety underwent extensive selection in Spain, and was reintroduced to California from Spain in 1990 under the name Navelina.
The Valencia or Murcia orange is one of the sweet oranges used for juice extraction. The dwarf Valencia orange tree is also among the easiest citrus tree to grow. It is a late-season fruit, and therefore a popular variety when the navel oranges are out of season. This is why the orange was chosen to be the official mascot of the 1982 FIFA World Cup held in Spain.
This may be one of the best dwarf oranges for the home gardener. For starters, the Everhard Navel Orange is more compact than the average navel orange tree. And fruit crops are generally heavy. Navel oranges are easy to peel and are the premier orange for eating out-of-hand.
Tarocco is a medium-large to large blood orange variety with few to no seeds. Tarocco blood orange is one of the major blood orange varieties of the world. The distinctive color is a natural mutation and is due to the presence of anthocyanin, the same plant compound that is responsible for the color of pomegranates. The distinctive color requires a chilly winter to develop properly.
Hamlin originated as a chance seedling in an orchard planted in 1879 near Deland, FL. Its fruit are round, small to medium, commercially seedless (0-6 seeds) and has a smooth, thin peel. Both peel and juice color are poor. It matures in late September in the Valley.
The trees are similar in vigor to Valencia trees, but slightly more erect in shape. The fruit are virtually seedless; occasionally a fruit will have one or two seeds. The total soluble solids or sugars and acidity are reported to be slightly lower than other Valencia selections. In Lindcove, California, the fruit reach legal maturity in late January/early February.
Marrs arose as a limb sport of ‘Washington’ navel in 1927 in Donna, TX. The tree is small by comparison to other oranges. Its fruit are medium large, round to slightly oblate, with a thin, smooth, moderately thick peel that is easily bruised during harvest. It can contain as many as nine seeds. The peel is yellowish, as is the juice, but quality is not particularly good because of low acidity, although the flavor is sweet. It matures in late September.
Navelate (VI 548) is a selection discovered in 1948 in the Castellon Province of Spain as a limb spot on a Washington navel orange tree. This selection was released for propagation in Spain in 1957 and imported into California in 1991. As a recent import into California, it has not been evaluated extensively yet.
The fruit of the N-33 Navel Orange tree is a lovely orange color, delicious, easily peeled, seedless fruit. It is produced by this medium sized tree and recognized as one of the sweetest oranges ever developed. The tree offers fragrant flowers in spring and beautiful foliage year round.
The development of blood coloration in Ruby is variable and for this reason, it has not become a popular variety. In California’s coastal region, it never develops red pigmentation. Ruby is at its best in hot interior districts, however under these conditions the pigmentation is still variable. Ruby has since been used as a parent variety in the development of new varieties of citrus and it has been found that although Ruby itself is poorly colored, its progeny tends to be very highly colored.
Navel orange trees, in general, and Carter navel orange trees in particular, are not very vigorous trees. They have a round, somewhat drooping canopy and grow to a moderate size at maturity. The flowers lack viable pollen so the Carter navel orange will not pollinate other citrus trees. Because of the lack of functional pollen and viable ovules, the Carter navel orange produces seedless fruits.
Shamouti oranges, also known as Jaffas, are an important Mediterranean orange mostly associated with Israel, and are fragrant and pleasantly sweet. Jaffa reportedly does not store well on-tree and tends to alternate bearing. Occasional blood orange flecking has been noted in a couple of smaller plantings in some seasons, although such flecking is not reported in the literature for either variety. Acreage is very limited.
‘Henderson’ and ‘Ray’ are usually lumped together in the industry as they are nearly indistinguishable. Both were discovered in the Valley in the early 1970′s.The fruit of these two varieties is similar to ‘Ruby Red’ except that the peel is more attractive than ‘Ruby Red’ and the flesh is even redder. It retains some semblance of redness far longer than is the case with ‘Ruby Red’.
‘Ruby Red’ was discovered on a ‘Pink Marsh’ tree in 1929 in McAllen, TX, and was patented in 1934. The fruit is of excellent quality, seedless ( 0 to 6 seeds), red-fleshed, oblate and thin skinned. The fruit usually has a red blush on an otherwise yellow peel.
Large, fragrant blooms and nearly white flesh make the Rio Red a standout variety. Sweeter than most grapefruit and great for juicing, ‘Rio Red’s’ juicy red flesh is a favorite at breakfast. Importantly, it is more tolerant of cold than other varieties. You can enjoy these citrus trees indoors in winter and on the patio all summer long. Hardy in Zones 9–10.
The Okitsu originated as a nucellar seedling of Miyagawa from a controlled pollination with Poncirus trifoliate made by Doctors M. Kajiura and T. Iwasaki at the Horticultural Research Station, Okitsu, in 1940. This fruit is seedless with good flavor and low acid content. The Satsumas are cold hardy and form a compact growing tree. They are the earliest mandarins in the marketplace.
The color of Miho fruit develops in late summer and early fall; peel is smooth and thin and leathery. It is easy to peel and has high sugar levels. It is a slow growing dwarf tree. The fruit should be harvested around or just before Thanksgiving. The color of Seto fruit develops in late summer and early fall; peel is notably smoother and thinner than other satsumas. The fruit is noticeably flat and hence packs extremely well. The Seto fruit should also be harvested just before Thanksgiving. Maintain them with weekly watering and weed control.
Satsuma mandarin trees (Citrus unshiu Marc.) are among the most cold hardy citrus varieties that have sufficient fruit quality for potential commercial marketing as well as for homeowners outside the typical citrus belt in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.
November through December is the peak time for Satsumas. Fruit matures before the rind develops an orange color so occasionally sample one starting in late October to determine if they are ripe. Unlike other citrus, Satsuma fruit holds poorly on the tree after ripening and should be picked promptly. If fruit is left on the tree too long after they mature, they become puffy or pithy and loose their flavor.
The Thornless Mexican Lime Tree is by far the most popular lime tree in North America. Although not as cold hardy as some other dwarf citrus trees, the dwarf Mexican Lime tree can be successfully container-grown on a sunny porch, your patio or indoors.
The trees are moderately-sized and bushy, almost shrub-like, and the leaves are distinctively aromatic when crushed. Mexican lime trees are sensitive to cold. The blossoms are pure white and fragrant. The fruits are small, approximately one and one-half inches in diameter, and almost round, with a thin, smooth, greenish-yellow rind at maturity that is especially fragrant. The flesh is greenish-yellow, seedy, and highly acidic, with a fine texture. Once Mexican limes reach full maturity, usually in autumn to early winter, they drop from the tree.
