Orange Bowl: Grow an Orange Tree

Wanna score a touchdown in your garden this summer? Cheer on team citrus with your very own orange tree. Greenista Girl Shubhra has been testing out Satsumas, which are small Clementine-like oranges. She says, they are seedless, simple to peel, sweet as can be, and super easy to grow in your garden or in a pot on your terrace. In the beginning of spring, the tree gets beautiful and fragrant jasmine-like white flowers on it. Eventually the flowers fall leaving tiny green beads that grow bigger every day until they change from green to yellow to orange.  Once you see that glowing orange color, it’s ripe and juicy for the picking. You can find Satsuma orange trees in nurseries now all ready to go with tiny oranges on them. Growing fruit in your own garden means no pesticides or CO2 emissions from shipping and packaging. It is a win-win situation.

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Vitamin C is a powerful natural antioxidant. Eating foods rich in vitamin C helps your  body develop resistance against infectious agents and also scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals from your blood.

    Great blog. Lots of websites like this cover subjects that can’t be found in magazines and newspapers. I don’t know how we got on 12 years ago with just newspapers and magazines.
