Orange Crop

We picked our very first orange off our little tree and only orange of the season. Kev was very greatful to the little bee that worked hard to polinate and provide us this single orange.
Our tree was a gift about 2 years ago from his brother. It is a Tangelo Honeybell tree (Honeybell because the orange pokes up at the top forming a bell shape). They make the best juice and are very sweet.
Very juicy and perfect texture, but not very sweet this year. We are hoping as the tree matures this will change.

This guy was a like a kid at christmas. He watched that one little orange grow for months, keeping a close eye.
Hoping for more oranges next year!
