Description

The "Ruby Blood" cultivar of Blood Orange (Citrus x sinensis) boasts an enchanting deep red flesh that becomes even darker in cooler weather, presenting a visual spectacle to complement its burst of flavour. Known for its intense juiciness, this tree provides both an aesthetic and gastronomic treat, making it a standout choice for garden enthusiasts and gourmands alike.

Perfect for both pots and direct ground planting, this sun-loving citrus tree flourishes in enriched soil, and if planted in sandy ground, a soil conditioner can prove beneficial. A regimented watering routine is essential, especially from Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn) during warmer days. For a fruitful yield, a citrus-focused fertiliser applied during Djilba (late winter to spring) is recommended.
