Now I need a Moro Blood Orange (I think)

In your experience, will Moro Blood Orange do well in a container? I picked up a couple at my local store this afternoon and my son loves them sliced, and I made a wonderful cocktail with Ketel One, seltzer and blood orange juice.

This could be a winner at my house if they grow well in containers! Please tell me this is possible in z6b/7a!

A Moro Blood orange should do fine in a container. Always try to find container citrus on semi-dwarf or dwarf rootstock. Helps to keep them a little happier in a container.

I think Four Winds says they will do okay - I just wanted words of experience. Thanks Patty!
