Boukhobza Blood Orange Tree For Sale

The Boukhobza Blood Orange is a blood orange that originated in La Soukra, Tunisia and is a seedling of Maltaise demi Sanquine blood orange.  The tree produces good sized round to oblong fruit that will get a red blood color on the side of the fruit exposed to the most sun.  While the flesh is not as dark as other blood oranges, the Boukhobza makes up for this with a much sweeter fruit than most blood oranges.  The season of maturity for Boukhobza is earlier than the standard Moro Blood Orange.  One note: The fruit in the photo above was grow inside of our greenhouse so coloring of the peel and the flesh will be different if grown outside.  Second photo showing fruit was taken during a trip to UCR in California.

Our Boukhobza Blood Orange trees are grafted so they are quicker to fruit.  These are 20-28" 1 gallon trees.

These are a few questions we are often asked and their answers:

  • Why dont you ship to FL or CA?
    We aren't able to due to USDA restrictions, we wish we could but we can't.
  • When will my tree fruit?
    We graft with certified mature buds so our trees are capable of flowering and producing fruit in the first season, but will definitely flower and produce fruit in the second season. We recommend removing fruit for the first couple years to allow the tree to focus on branching and growing roots.
  • What does this variety taste like?
    In most cases the original Budwood program we purchased Certified buds from does not offer much in the way of descriptions or taste information. We then grow those buds out and continuously harvest new buds and then sell young trees so we simply don't always end up with fruit to try so unless its listed, we don't know what they taste like.
  • Do you have anymore of these available?
    We try hard to add inventory when it grows large enough, if a product shows as 0 available please click the notify button to be emailed as soon as we add inventory to the site.
  • What rootstock is this grafted onto?
    We use a handful of rootstock varieties for different reasons when we are grafted. If the variety says "Dwarf" then that variety is grafted to Flying Dragon. If it is not listed as Dwarf then we either used a standard rootstock or semi dwarfing rootstock. When fully mature the difference between Dwarf and Standard is only about 80% difference, it just takes dwarf longer to grow that large. You can maintain tree size through pot size and effective pruning.
