The Owari next to my back door is starting to bloom. Smells marvelous!

What rootstock/s are your trees on? How old are they?

Your trees would appreciate it if you removed the grass from around their trunk.   I see you have a Bahia orange. The Bahia orange tree is the variety that was originally imported from Brazil into the USA in 1870 by the USDA. The USDA then sent out out from Washington two of the trees to Mrs. Luther C. Tibbes, of Riverside, California who grew them in her yard.. The trees were among the first to bloom and fruit in the USA.  It is from these two trees, one of which still is living, that the navel orange industry of California and mainly of the world has developed. The variety came to be referred  commonly as the Washington Navel orange, and was distributed under that incorrect name.  Later horticulturists attempted to introduce the correct name, Bahia, but to no avail: the markets had become so familiar with the designation Washington navel that it could not be supplanted.  We would be interested in seeing the rest of your citrus collection.

Hello Millet! Thank's a lot for your comment! Bahia oranges are  very common here. I have two of them. I have 1 Celamondine, 1 tangerine from Setúbal that is an old local variety, 1 valencia orange, 1 Cara cara, 1 Chandler pomelo, 1 Tahiti lime, 1 Vanilla orange of the variety "vaniglia apireno di Ribera", 1 Lisbon lemon, 1 usual grapefruit, 1 grapefruit from Corsega that is very big and sweet, 1 moro orange, 1 sanguinello orange, 1 Clementine Amoa 8, 1 Kumquat and 4 fingerlime (green, red, rose and yellow pulp). This is the list of all my citrus trees. 20 trees total. ;D

Louisport, the Fausterime green finger lime isn't it the one with the double thorn growth.  I used to have a fairly large Fausterine tree some year back.  It is a real pincushion tree, with thorns absolutely everywhere. You have a very nice citrus collection.

Hi! I didn't know the faustrime finger lime has those caracteristics... Thank you, and i'm trying to find two more pomelo varieties, one of yellow flesh and sweet and the hirado butan but i don't know any seller. I will have the taroco and the fragola oranges.  ;D
