Description

New Product!

An easy-to-grow, unique fruit suitable for containers!

The Cara Cara Orange or “Red Navel” is the result of the cross-pollination of a Washington Navel Orange and a Brazilian Bahia Navel Orange. The fruit is seedless and easy to peel.

Loved by chefs and mixologists, this orange has pink-red flesh, packed with an amazing flavor to use in sauces and syrups. Traditional navel oranges are prized for their supremely sweet taste, Cara Cara oranges on the other hand are even sweeter, with less acidity and a hint of cranberry or blackberry overtones. These oranges are also often compared to blood oranges. However, blood oranges are more like grapefruit in terms of bitterness,

The Cara Cara Red Navel tree can grow up to 15-20 feet, but can be kept to 6-8 feet with pruning, perfect as a container tree for your patio! Provide this evergreen tree with enough sun, you will get a bounty of fresh oranges. Just pick the fruit when they are firm, shiny, heavy and when you start to smell the sweet aroma.

Survival Guaranteed!
