Seville Sour Orange
This is the fastest-growing citrus available and a popular street tree along the Mediterranean coast where its bright fruit cheer up a winter's day. The handsome shape, dark foliage and sweet-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!
Seedling grown - this is one of the few citrus that has excellent disease resistance without the need for a rootstock. Tip prune regularly to maintain compact, healthy growth. Plant in full sun in a soil enriched with aged compost and manure. Fertilise monthly and water regularly during dry periods.
