Clementino Rubino
« on: July 30, 2017, 01:39:21 PM »
My little seedling Clementino Rubino is showing some new growth. I think she likes her new home :)
I can see some new shots on the sides and makes me wonder if this variety is rather a bush form then a tree? Some of the leaves at the top were lost right after arriving and I think it might have been because of the heat while in transport. They also hat black tips. Everything new look nice :)

Does this have another name?  Never heard of it and I thought I'd seen all the blood oranges/mandarins.
