Description

The Blood Orange variety ‘Sanguinello’ originates from Spain. It is slightly more compact, grows smaller and slower than other Blood Oranges. These are, however, distinct features that basically show in plantations. In container cultivation one can hardly notice these differences, especially not in young plants. Its flowers are medium-sized (2-3 cm), white and have an intense sweet fragrance.
The peel of fruit shows a distinct red- to crimson-colored pigmentation which is even enhanced by a drop of temperature at night during final ripening. The fruits are slightly smaller than other Blood Oranges and less round but rather oval to egg-shaped. Like other blood oranges, they are almost seedless and stick to the branches for a long time without decrease in quality, which even adds an additional decorative value to the fruiting plant.
