Fall harvest sour orange ?
« on: January 02, 2023, 09:12:13 PM »
Is there a sour orange / citrus aurantium that will have mature fruit for fall harvest? My Seville fruits from last year never fully colored up even into the next summer, and this year’s crop was lost still fully green with last week’s severe prolonged freeze. Bad variety for me.

Yah, its called a K-Early.  ::) Actually, I shouldn't say that since I've never tasted one. My comment is just based on what others have told me.

Thanks for the response, Galatians. I’ll look that one up.

Just to be clear, I think K-Early is actually classed as  a tangelo. However, a friend who tried some described the flavor more like sour orange. I've never eaten one.
