Parent Navel Orange Tree (Tibbets’ Tree): Riverside City Landmark #15 — 1 Comment

  1. Just ate a navel orange for lunch from the tree in our backyard…our tree looks to be about as big as yours in Riverside. Reid and I have often said that the best part of living where we do is getting to eat those oranges. They are soooooo sweet and juicy–better than our neighbors’ oranges, better by far than the ones from the store! I wonder how closely they resemble the original tree? Interesting that the trees will not grow from seed. Sometimes late in the season we come across an orange with a sprouted seed inside. How do they turn green when they are hidden inside and orange?
