Thanks, this is helpful. I have such limited space and want to pick the most interesting varieties for the few I can put inground.

Thanks. At this point I'd like to taste the fruit, to know if the variety is one worth growing, and I'd like to know the seasons when it is ready, particularly in the Southeast. I'm in Savannah, where it might ripen at a different time from CA.

Citrus General Discussion / Anyone Growing Oroblanco?

I'm interested in trying Oroblanco fruit if anyone can send me one or two. I'll pay you for the postage. Or if you are growing this variety, when does the fruit ripen in your area and what do you think of its flavor and how well does it hold on the tree? All opinions welcome!
