Citrus aurantium 'Gou Tou'

Sour Orange, Gou Tou

Woodlanders has been a leader in offering a wide range of Citrus and Citrus hybrids which are hardy outdoors beyond the normal Citrus growing areas.The Gou Tou Sour Orange is reported to be widely grown in southeast Asia.  The fruit is like a large orange with pale orange sour but tasty flesh that is very like that of a grapefruit.  Ours were propagated from a large specimen that our friend and plantsman Joe Levert has growing at Aquinas High School in Augusta, GA. where it has proven hardy and very fruitful.  Sour Orange is generally inedible but used extensively for making marmalade.  Gou Tou is actually quite edible.   Note:  Citrus cannot be shipped to AZ, CA, TX, LA, or FL.
