The tree I brought home had a number of small fruits and all but two eventually dropped off. The two remaining oranges grew and ripened until last week when I picked them a few days apart.
Let the feasting begin...pleasant to the eyes....
Cut into sections. Note there is a seed, so we'll call it nearly seedless compared to satsumas.
How did it taste? Yum! Sweet and juicy as advertised. Very similar to a clementine but a bit sweeter. Then the zest went into cranberry sauce and the peels were tucked inside the Thanksgiving turkey with the aromatics so the entire orange was used.
The tree cost $40 which amortizes to $20 each for two oranges. It's been worth the investment so far as the tree also counts as an evergreen in the landscape. We'll fertilize the heck out of it in the spring and look to amortize and enjoy more oranges next year. Or will this be a sleep, creep, and leap tree? We'll see.
