Citrus x sinensis Orange 'Cara Cara Navel'
Cara cara is an attarctice compact tree with glossy green, variegated leaves, red-brown stems and bark producing a deliciously sweet orange with dark pulp.
Will grow in most soil types as long as well drained. For best results plant in a warm full sun position. Prune to shape in early spring. Orange can be attacked by Citrus Scale and Citrus Leaf Miner. Use appropriate treatment if detected. Prevent insect attack by growing in ideal conditions. Fertilise in Spring and late Summer with high nitrogen fertiliser. If using granulated citrus food, be careful not to over-fertilise, as burning of foliage may occur.
A great variety for the garden or orchard. Will grow in large containers, but a smaller growing variety may be better.
