Notes for Identification:

Source: floridata - gardeners in zones 9-11 know that orange trees make beautiful and carefree specimen trees. With glossy evergreen foliage, highly fragrant blossoms, and ornamental as well as edible fruits, the oranges are hard to beat in the subtropical landscape. Grafted orange trees begin bearing in 2-3 years, and the fruit keeps well on the tree for several months. Care:  full sun for maximum production, but oranges do quite well in partial shade, or under the light, filtered shade of large pines or oaks. Orange trees are fairly drought tolerant, but fruit quantity and size may suffer if supplemental water is not given during prolonged dry periods. Annual rainfall totals of 40-45 in (102-114 cm) are adequate for orange trees. Orange trees cannot tolerate saturated soils. A caterpillar host for the giant swallowtail
