Orange

Citrus_ spp.

Fragrant flowers, rinds, and fruits make oranges some of the most perfume-rich plants you can grow. There are hundreds of different cultivars. Look for a cultivar that fits your needs. For example, some are best for juice, eating fresh, or harvesting the rind. Choose a dwarf tree or shrub form for easy harvest and pruning.
