Maltaise Sanguine Blood Orange Variegated
This is a sport that appeared here at the nursery as a spontaneous bud mutation.
A branch on one of our Maltaise blood oranges appeared with a rather beautiful variegation and after several years has proven stable.
The variegation is most striking on young growth.
We have a very limited quantity propagated for the first time.
This is a high quality semi-blood orange with medium size fruit. The flesh and the skin have a predominantly orange colour, which may occasionally have a slight pigmentation. The fruit is very juicy and virtually seedless, the flavour is regarded by some as one of the best, outside of the non-navel oranges.
