The Moro Blood Orange is universally recognized as the ‘connoisseur’s citrus’, and the very best blood orange in the world. This is the one with solid, deep-red flesh that when fully mature is almost black. It is also the best tasting, with the perfect blend of citrus tang and sweetness, combined with the floral and berry-flavors of raspberries, and a subtle, sophisticated bitter touch. Blood oranges are incredibly popular, and yet only rarely available, but now you can have them right at your fingertips, from December to April, when your tree will be laden-down with ripe fruit. This tree is easy to grow in the garden in hot states, and in a container anywhere else in the country.

  • The very best blood orange in the world
  • Entire flesh in deep, dark red
  • The unique flavor or citrus and raspberries
  • Easily grown in the ground or in a container
  • Ripens from December to April

Outdoors the Moro Blood Orange will grow in any well-drained soil, in full sun. In a container use citrus-tree soil, or a blend of cactus and regular potting soil. Your pot must have drainage, and never leave it standing in water. Keep your tree in a sunny place when outdoor temperatures are above 40 degrees, and in a cool, bright room or porch during colder months. Hand-pollination is recommended to give you the biggest crop from potted trees. This tree is easy to grow, fast-growing, and it can be pruned to control its size in a container, if necessary.
