Budd blood orange
« on: April 05, 2017, 02:58:08 PM »
I don't recall hearing of this one earlier, does anyone know anything about it?  How does it compare to better known blood oranges?  Does it require less chill to develop good color (it supposedly originated in FL)?

Here is info on it from a nursery:

I don't know much about Budd Blood orange, but they have been around for at least 10 years or so.  Harris Citrus (Florida) also used to sell them, but I don't see them on their Blood Orange listings any more..
