those look great.
Have you ever taste Texas Sweet orange? I bought a box from Our local HyVee Supermarket and they are so sweet.
Fresh Oranges in February, God’s creations never cease to amaze me.
@tonyOmahaz5 - it appears the name is the trademark of a distributor in Texas. The variety is likely Washington.
My WN tree right now is so loaded with fruit I had to shim up the limbs with 2X4’s to keep them from breaking!
Very prolific for a young tree. I’m sure I have over a hundred pounds of fruit on my tree just waiting to be consumed.
We have a place in Phoenix with a Cara Cara Orange. It was an impulse buy at Lowe’s many years ago. The thing grew way faster than expected and puts out beautiful and tasty fruit. I mulch and trim it and that’s about it.
I wish I could grow them down here so bad!
Richard, what a reward this year! Amazing crop! Knowing how you keep your trees. That is probably no taller then 5-6 feet?
Would you show a cross-section of one of your Washington Navels?
I just picked my first Washington navel from ghouse grown 2-year-old plant. I wonder if its rind is abnormally thick (perhaps indicating too much N or too little P?).
My Washington Navel is the one on the right …which I contrasted with a store bought orange that I think was a navel.
I also love Clauson Nursery in Vista CA. They have a wonderful selection, know everything, do their own grafting, have been in business 2 generations at least. Always helpful and wonderful prices. And yes, they are a bit quirky. Other tropical fruit trees too.
My experiences with them have been different.
Now I’m convinced I bought a tree with the wrong tag. My Washington navel looks nothing like yours. Mine are small and smooth. Probably a juicing orange.
Is it seeded?
No seeds. Maybe a Valencia variety idk
