Question for the Experts
Was reading a previous thread where Tantanman mentioned the Marrs orange was a sport of a seedless navel. I have something similar. Have a Cara red navel. I purchased it with 3 fruit on it years ago. The fruit were variegated, very sweet, and seedless. After harvesting the fruit I decided to plant the tree inground. Left the potted tree for @ 5 minutes. Came back and my bulldog had eaten the tree in half. Had about an inch an 1/2 left above the graft. Variegated Cara's were pretty rare in Houston at that time so I kept the tree. It took about 2 years for the limbs to grow back and produce fruit. All limbs were variegatged and the fruit variegated and still very sweet, but seedy. The tree continues to produce very sweet, variegated, and seedy oranges. Any ideas? Could this be something similar to Marrs?
