It has been a very usually cold winter here in Alexandria and I had to bring my potted citrus trees inside to keep them from freezing so I was surprised when I discovered that the blood orange tree is full of buds. I would have thought that moving them back and forth would have set it off from blooming. The blooms are very small and not near ready to open so I hope not to have to move it as orange trees can lose blooms with sudden weather changes.
Now I have mentioned before that the blood orange gives fruit only once every three years and the last time it bloomed I was only rewarded it with one large and very flavorful orange. It is a small tree and not very old so maybe this will be the year of more fruit? Keep your fingers crossed.
