Grooved Bitter Orange ‘Canaliculata’ (Citrus Aurantium)
This Bitter Orange variety is suitable for pot growing, thanks to its moderate growth habit; it has big deep green leaves and its branches are less spiny than the other cultivars of the Aurantium family. This tree has an abundant sweet-scented flowering, can bloom several times a year and for most of the year you will see the Grooved Bitter Orange with flowers and fruits showing a wonderful contrast of colours: the orange of the fruits and the deep green of the leaves. This characteristic makes it an excellent ornamental plant. Its orange fruits have a medium-small size and vertical grooves on their wrinkled peel.
USES AND FUN FACTS
The Grooved Bitter Orange fruits can be used to prepare marmalades, just like all the Aurantium fruits.
This tree has a good resistance to cold weather, but we recommend to shelter it in case of temperatures below -5 °C.
