Page Orange Trees
The Page Orange Citrus Tree would be a terrific addition to any garden landscape in the Tampa Bay area. It is a hybrid that was originally designed 70 years ago to be a commercially grown fruit, but when growers tried unsuccessfully to cause them to produce larger fruit, plans came to a halt. Today they are mostly privately grown. The fruit produced is small (a little larger than a plum)and great for families: kids will appreciate it being easy to peel and they are great juicing oranges. The page orange produces from October until December, and at times to February, typically producing a large amount of quality, sweet delicious fruit. If you are looking for a fruit bearing tree to supply your family for a good part of the year, then come check out the Page Orange here at Keep It Green.
