Sour orange cultivars for marinade
« on: November 01, 2012, 07:41:29 AM »
I know there are various sour orange cultivars. But I wonder is anyone knows which the best for marinating food is or which one is best for making “mojo” a Spanish Caribbean marinade. Are there any nurseries that carry multiple sour orange varieties?

Hi Carlos,

I don't have any experience with sour orange cultivars, but I do have a few seedling trees about 6 years old. Do you know when these may be due to fruit? I expect 6-8 years but wanted to see if you had any experience.

Thanks,
Jaime

Jaine I don't have experience with citrus. I have been wanting to buy a sour orange for but there is not a lot of information. I saw in a California web site 3-4 cultivars but I have not been able to find any in Florida

I have a 5-year old seedling that I am willing to trade. Do you have anything you are willing to trade?

It is definitely not a cultivar, it was grown from seeds.

Thanks,
Jaime

I have done the research and the sour orange used for mojo is the Seville. If anyone know where to get one please let me know

Hmmm... I'm not a fan of jackfruit and I already have a few seedlings of G. Intermedia.

Maybe I will post a 3-way offer to see if anyone is interested.

Stay tuned!

Big difference between rough and smooth saville. Make sure you get the right one. Rough is the best for marmalade.

I have not seen two listed variations of Seville sour oranges. Not many nurseries carry them in US. If they are different they most be two different cultivars. Thanks for the info, now I'm having problems finding one in Florida.

The only ones I have seen have been rough skinned...unfortunately while they used to be common they are now difficult to locate.

Carlos

these seem to grow very well in Socal. My mother has a very nice one in Los Angeles. I have friends that grow these in their properties. I'll see if they have any seedlings.

Do they grow true from seed?
