Maltaise Sanguine Blood Orange Variegated


Citrus sinensis:

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.
