Description

The Bitter Orange ‘Consolei’ (Citrus aurantium 'Consolei') has been known in Europe since the 16th century, also known under the cultivar name of ‘Canaliculata’, ‘Incanelati’ or ‘Striatum’. Its crown is compact and without thorns, the leaves are slighlty more round than other Bitter Oranges. With 3 to 3.5 cm in diameter the white, sweetly fragrant flowers exceed the size of other varieties’ bloom. The flowers are usually lined up along the branches. The fruits are 3-5 cm large. They have a distinctive orange coloured peel with ridges that run parallel from the fruit base to its end. These ridges give the fruits a wrinkled look. Healthy plants provide an annual rich harvest. The juice and the fruits can be used for making jam and as seasonings in the kitchen.
