I get new color on my balcony this week.
Yellow-orange....or golden-yellow...
Wow... my variegated acid orange are ripe!

I planted it in a big pot on my balcony side by side with my acid orange.
I love the color of the leaves.
Green and pale white (creamy) leaves... so beautiful.
I plant it as an ornamental plant. 
But I get it's fruits too.

Look... the skin is variegated too.
There are green stripes on it.
Although the fruits are really small.
And the pulp is very... very... very... sour. 
Like the name... acid orange....








I get new vitamin C source again for this week.
Have a wonderful day with your own fruits.

  1. Do you eat this fruit? And you asked for my eggplant parmesan recipe. It is just layers of spaghetti ragu, roasted eggplant slices, parmesan cheese and any other cheese I find in the fridge. Then I heat it up in a medium oven (350F) for 20-30 minutes. Cheese on top should be melted and sauce bubbly. Then serve over noodles. Easy peasy! Linda

  2. Do you sweeten it since it is so sour? They are pretty little fruits.

    1. Yes Lisa, I usually squeeze an orange, then pour it in to a glass of water and add a teaspoon of sugar. So fresh and tasty.
      Thank you for coming.
