Blood Orange Tree Produce
My mother has a blood orange tree that produces the best ever oranges! I bought one about 4 yrs ago. It produces about 5-6 oranges per season. The problem is, the oranges are pretty nasty tasting. The juice is sweet but has no flavor! If you were in a blind taste-test, you would NEVER guess citrus of any sort. This is the 2nd year it produced. Last years fruit was even nastier tasting. The tree is very slow growing too. Other orange trees,(not blood orange) 2 years younger have more than doubled the height of the blood orange tree.
I have threatend to pull it out and replace it but my heart won't let me destroy a live plant. So, if any one has advice or a reason why the oranges aren't good, please let me know how to correct it.
