Oroblanco Grapefruit Trees

$65.00$210.00

Known as “Sweetie”, Oroblanco produces very large, sweet seedless fruit with very fragrant flowers and beautiful glossy foliage.

Oroblancos are either round- or oval-shaped with a thicker rind than grapefruit. When eaten, an oroblanco lacks bitterness associated with grapefruits and is rather sweet, even when the outer peel is still green, but the white membranes separating the fleshy segments are bitter and usually discarded.[7] The oroblanco fruit has a similar taste to the scent of its flowers.[citation needed]

Oroblancos are available from September through December. They may be peeled and eaten like an orange — by separating into segments — and are often eaten at breakfast.[8] They have a thick skin with an inside about the size of a mandarin.[citation needed]

The oroblanco tree does not grow in cold conditions, but does tend to adapt quickly to its environment and is a vigorous grower.[citation needed] It is estimated that oroblanco are grown on 1,500 ha (3,707 acres) in California, and over 10 ha (25 acres) in Australia.[citation needed] A similar fruit[citation needed] has been commonly cultivated in Israel since 1984, from where the name “Sweetie” originated.
