Striped Orange, Seville-Orange Seeds (Citrus aurantium fasciata)

Price for Package of 2 seeds.

The ripe fruit is randomly striped between deep-orange and yellow orange, an indication of a botanical 'chimera', where two varieties are intermingled in one plant.

The Citrus aurantium 'Fasciata' was already described in the 16th century and is probably already known since the beginning of 1500.

The historical variety is also known under the varieties 'Virgatum', 'Virgolare' or 'Fiamato'.

Their trademark is the fruit shells, in which "stripes" of different widths are placed like a second layer.

These are initially green in color during the maturity, while the lower skin turns yellow.

When fully ripe, the strips are orange, resulting in an orange-yellow grain.

The growth of the Striped Orange, Seville-Orange is compact, well branched.

The leaves, richly filled with essential oils, are dark green and glossy, isolated with a yellow pattern. The flowers are 2-3 cm big and white with intense smell.
