The "Cara Cara Blood" cultivar of Blood Orange (Citrus x sinensis) is a feast for both the eyes and the palate, known for its distinct blood navel orange appearance with captivating deep reddish-pink flesh. This mid-season fruiting variety sets itself apart with a unique berry-like flavour, an enticing juiciness, and the added advantage of being virtually seedless. The easy-to-peel thin skin further adds to its charm, making it a garden favourite.

Ideal for planting both in the ground and pots, the "Cara Cara Blood" requires consistent hydration from Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn) to thrive. If choosing ground planting, integrating a soil conditioner is highly recommended for sandy soils to promote optimal growth. During Djilba (late winter to spring), a light application of citrus fertiliser will greatly benefit the tree, ensuring a luscious harvest when the time comes.
