*Dwarf Seville Orange Tree
*(image is for illustrative purposes only, actual tree may look different)
The Seville Sour Orange, is essential for great tasting, authentic English marmalade. Named after the city in Spain (because they have been grown there as an ornamental since around the end of the 12th century), the Seville orange is also called bitter orange or sour orange. In contrast to its relative the sweet orange, Seville orange fruits have a bitter peel and sour pulp and are not eaten as fresh fruit. The trees are widely used as an ornamental with dark green leaves. The fruits have a pebbled skin that is rougher than that of sweet orange and a more vivid color. Flowers appear in late February into March with a sweet fragrance.
PLEASE READ PRIOR TO ORDERING: To allow for a shorter amount of time that your tree will be under the "stress of shipping", these young trees are shipped directly from our supplier to you. As soon as your tree is shipped, you will receive a tracking number in order to track your tree.
Also...when prepared for shipping, the soil is removed from the tree’s roots and they are carefully packed with moist wood shavings in a plastic bag. So, bare-rooted citrus trees should be planted in a 12-14” container, or in the ground and watered upon arrival.
And finally...due to USDA restrictions, citrus trees cannot be shipped to: Arizona, Texas and Florida.
