Frequently asked question; Why don't we grow or produce orange oranges varieties here ?


First, Oranges were not named as a result of orange colour, because all normal healthy oranges grow green and later turns yellowish to rippening. Secondly, All orange oranges from else where are the same green orange varieties, we grow here and they are tremedously better
