The Cara Cara orange, also known as the "Red Navel" orange, is a unique and flavorful citrus fruit that has gained popularity for its distinct characteristics. Here's a description of the Cara Cara orange plant:

Plant Description:

  1. Tree Appearance: The Cara Cara orange tree (Citrus sinensis 'Cara Cara') is a medium-sized evergreen tree that typically reaches a height of about 10-15 feet (3-4.5 meters) when grown in ideal conditions. It has a rounded canopy with glossy, dark green leaves that emit a pleasant citrus fragrance when crushed.

  2. Fruit Appearance: The most remarkable feature of the Cara Cara orange is its fruit. The oranges are medium to large in size and have a slightly oblate shape (somewhat flattened at both ends). The skin of the fruit is relatively thin and smooth, ranging in color from a bright orange to a deeper reddish hue, which gives rise to the "Red Navel" nickname.

  3. Fruit Flavor: Cara Cara oranges are renowned for their exceptionally sweet and slightly tangy flavor profile. They are often described as having a complex taste with notes of cherry, raspberry, and cranberry, in addition to the typical citrusy flavors. The flesh is usually a vibrant pink to reddish color, which adds to their visual appeal.

  4. Harvest Time: Cara Cara oranges are typically in season during the winter months, making them a delightful addition to the citrus harvest during that time.

  5. Climate and Growing Conditions: Cara Cara orange trees thrive in subtropical to tropical climates. They require plenty of sunlight and well-draining soil. Like other citrus trees, they are sensitive to frost and cold temperatures.

  6. Cultivation: These orange trees can be grown in containers or in the ground. Regular watering and appropriate fertilization are important for healthy growth and fruit production. Pruning can help maintain the tree's shape and encourage better air circulation.

  7. Landscape Use: Cara Cara orange trees make excellent additions to home gardens, providing both ornamental beauty and delicious fruit. Their attractive foliage, fragrant flowers, and uniquely colored fruit make them versatile plants for landscaping.
