Odd orange some­thing of a lemon

Great Southern Herald - - News - Saskia Adysti

Or­anges come in all shapes and sizes but this beauty from a Great South­ern tree is one of a kind.

Clif­ford Os­borne said he was stunned when he saw the ab­nor­mal-look­ing orange grow­ing on his McKail orange tree.

Mr Os­borne said he had spent many years work­ing in his fa­ther’s or­chard in Ken­de­nup, but he had never seen an orange like this be­fore.

“In all my life I’ve never seen any­thing like this,” he said.

“I’ve al­ways been into gar­den­ing, so I have planted a lot of or­chard trees in the past.”

Mr Os­borne sus­pected the lemon tree right next to his orange tree might be the main cause of the un­usual oc­cur­rence.

He said the orange tasted like a nor­mal orange, with a slight hint of the sour­ness of­ten found in lemons.
