Orange Trees

I bought my first ever orange tree. It's massive. Has tons of cute oranges hanging down too. Never realized how busy garden centres are during Chinese New Year. Tons of people. Was kind of invigorating seeing so many people buying plants and flowers. My parents never got into decorating for CNY.

Not sure how to take care of the orange tree. It didn't come with instructions. Hope it survives past CNY.

Happy New Year, everyone!

    I've always wondered, though I've yet to ask anyone about it, are those really little oranges. Can they be eaten? Or are they just little limes in a different pigment......

    Well, they are pretty delicate so they turn into mush before you can finish peeling them. So I just squeezed a bit of the juice into my tea which made it taste quite bitter. Not a good idea. I don't think they are really meant for eating, but had to try....

    5 or 6 oranges have dropped since I got it. What does that mean? Hope it's not a bad sign.
