Citrus - Troyer citrange

Back in stock: Now
$7.35
In stock
Poncirus-orange cross with better resilience to cold than sweet oranges, and fruiting while still quite a young tree. The fruit has a thin rind and lots of juice (and pips!), and is sour like a lemon - one for duck a l'orange and fruity pies rather than eating raw.

"When I visited the tree of this in Field 8A with Swingle, he was much pleased with its vigor and numerous plump seeds and told me to put down the name Troyer for it as the first fruits came to him from a Mr. Troyer at Fairhope, Alabama. It thus becomes the Troyer citrange and I will describe it under that name in my Variety manuscript." HJ Webber 1934
