ORANGE 'SEVILLE'

This is the fastest-growing citrus. Tough enough to be a street tree along the Mediterranean coast where its bright fruit cheer up a winter's day. The handsome shape, dark foliage and sweetly-scented flowers make a tough and attractive hedge or a fine garden specimen. That's enough to earn a place in any Australian garden, but the clincher is the much sought-after fruit! For those who know their marmalades, this is THE orange for making marmalade!
