Navel Oranges are identified by their distinctive button formation on the opposite side of the stem. As one would expect of Navel Oranges, the ‘Cara Cara’ is seedless and peels/breaks apart easily. Discovered in Venezuela in the mid-1970s, the difference from other Navels is the ‘Cara Cara’ fruit’s dark pink to red colored interior, which has a sweet, berry-like flavor. Each fruit is loaded with vitamin C.
Utilize citrus trees in the landscape just like any ornamental tree. Give enough space that light is available from all sides, away from the shade of larger trees or buildings. A great plant for large patio containers where the fragrant flowers can be enjoyed and the fruit easily picked. Can also be grown indoors if space and ample sunlight can be provided.
