Blood Orange - Arnold
Arnold Blood is a newer variety discovered by Mike Arnold. Mike is an Australian citrus grower in South Australia. Blood oranges are predominately grown along the coast of Australia and are sold through farmers markets, supermarkets and speciality growers in Europe and the United States.
It is a true blood orange with a orange to dark red, streaky flesh and a slight red blush on the skin. This variety produces a good red pigmentation in Sydney and coastal climates, although does produce better colour in cooler climates. The smallish, fruit ripens mid-winter and has a distinctive tang. The tree is also small and bushy, making it suitable for pots or a small garden.
Feed with fruit n citrus fertiliser to produce plenty of flowers and fruit. Keep well watered during warmer months.
