Millet, do you grow a Cara Cara navel orange? I am growing two grafted trees and they both have one fruit each.  The size are greater than a good size grapefruit, is that possible?

Yes, I have a large in ground  Cara Cara with fruit about the same size as Washington Navel orange  Your tree's  fruit are that size because there is only one fruit on the tree.

Do you have any idea as when it would ripen.  LAST year the mother tree had 4 and they did't taste all that well,dry and pulpy,believe it was in the latter part of January.

My Cara Cara fruit mature from  middle/late November through February.   Cara Cara hangs well on the tree.
