CITRUS GREEN ORANGE KAHET
Known locally as “Kahet”, this local orange is a green variety bearing green smooth skinned fruits that mature in color to light glossy green and slightly turning yellow; thin rind fruit comparable in size to oranges grown in the U.S. Reasonably sweet when fruits are fully matured.
Although the Chamorro-English dictionary indicated the “Kahet” to be of the Citrus aurantium (sour orange) and also the Citrus sinensis (sweet orange), our internet reading on the description of the Citrus aurantium and Citrus sinensis does not match the characteristics of our tropical orange and seems to relate to our tropical lemonade citrus tree (known locally as “Lalangha”). Therefore, we are unable to locate and confirm the scientific name of this tropical green orange citrus.
Easy to grow citrus. Plant seed 1/2″ to 1″ deep in porous well-draining soil in small container from 1 qt. to 1/2 gallon. Place in sunny to partly sunny location and keep moist. Seed should germinate in approx. 30 days; keep soil temperature warm in cold climates and avoid exposing seeds to cold wet soil. Seedling would be ready to transplant to ground when reaching 12″ to 18″ inches in height.
Seeds packed fresh on date of purchase with planting instructions included. Planting information assistance is gladly provided on request.
