Duck a l'orange and Seville Oranges

Posted by njoasis 7 (My Page) on

Three Christmases ago, My holiday meal was duck a l'orange. I planted the seeds from the Seville Oranges used for the recipe. They have been growing in communal pots and have postponed separating them until today. Now, I have about 30 of them--may be my New Year's Gifts for my friends. So, this Christmas more duck and another batch of seeds to plant. They grow fairly fast and seem more vigorous than Sweet Orange in my opinion. Also more cold tolerant. These are going back into a 'cold' greenhouse.

I like the tree to, as I am bias towards seed grown citrus . If you use Google plus you can display larger pictures with the that kind of link you used.

My 4 Sweetlee tangerine trees are seed grown. Click link below to see the difference in Google. Click any pic to enlarge and then use the thumb weal to go up to 8 megapixals

Those look nice but I always thought that trees planted from Citrus seeds might not end up like their parent plant? Or is that only with particular varieties?

Looks good so I hope they are winners!

RE: Duck a l'orange and Seville Oranges

Seville sour orange has a very high tendency to come true from seed. That is one reason why they are a favorite variety to use for rootstock where that can be done. You should use an old citrus rootstock culling technique to help additionally. Take out the largest ones and the smallest ones and keep the mid-sized. This was first described by Swingle many years ago.
