Descrizione del prodotto

Citrus aurantium "Corrugated Orange," commonly known as the corrugated orange, is a citrus tree cultivar prized for its unique appearance and fragrant blossoms. Here's a description of its key features:

  1. Fruit: The fruit of the corrugated orange is similar to that of standard bitter oranges, characterized by a thick, textured rind with deep ridges or corrugations. The fruit is typically smaller than sweet oranges and has a tart, bitter flavor. It is commonly used in culinary applications, such as marmalades, sauces, and flavorings.

  2. Leaves: The foliage of the corrugated orange tree is glossy and dark green, with a characteristic citrus scent when crushed. The leaves are oval-shaped and arranged alternately along the branches.

  3. Flowers: Corrugated orange trees produce highly fragrant white flowers with five petals. The blossoms are not only visually appealing but also attract pollinators like bees and butterflies. They typically appear in clusters and contribute to the ornamental value of the tree.

  4. Growth Habit: Citrus aurantium "Corrugated Orange" typically grows into a small to medium-sized tree, reaching heights of around 10 to 15 feet when mature. It has a dense, rounded canopy, making it suitable for ornamental planting in gardens and landscapes.

Cultivation Tips:

  1. Climate: Corrugated oranges thrive in subtropical to tropical climates with mild winters and warm summers. They prefer full sun exposure but can tolerate partial shade.

  2. Soil: Plant corrugated orange trees in well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Sandy loam or loamy soils are ideal. Ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

  3. Watering: Water young trees regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Once established, corrugated orange trees are somewhat drought-tolerant but still benefit from regular watering during dry periods.

  4. Fertilization: Apply a balanced citrus fertilizer according to the manufacturer's instructions, typically in spring and summer. Avoid excessive nitrogen fertilization, as it can lead to excessive vegetative growth at the expense of fruit production.

  5. Pruning: Prune corrugated orange trees to maintain a desirable shape, improve air circulation, and remove dead or diseased branches. Pruning should be done in late winter or early spring before the onset of new growth.

  6. Pest and Disease Control: Monitor the tree regularly for signs of pest infestations, such as aphids, scale insects, or citrus leaf miners. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or horticultural oil. Practice good sanitation to prevent fungal diseases like citrus canker and sooty mold.

  7. Harvesting: Corrugated oranges are typically harvested when fully ripe, which can vary depending on the specific cultivar and growing conditions. The fruit should develop a deep orange color and be firm to the touch. Harvest carefully to avoid damaging the delicate skin.
