Citrus aurantium

Sour Orange

Sour Orange is widely grown as an ornamental and even as a street tree.  It is somewhat naturalized in Florida.  It is useful for making marmalade but not otherwise edible.  This unnamed selection is propagated from a single tree we were surprised to find growing on the edge of an abandoned sandy field in a remote section of Appling County, Georgia.  No residences were nearby.  We were attracted to the abundant large and very showy fruit.  These were loose skinned and easily peeled but not the least bit edible.  Indeed they tasted nasty !   This might be a good orange to plant for looks and as a well deserved treat for those who like to help themselves to such things !
