Ancient Asian selection of the bitter orange with lovely twisted stems & wicked thorns. Extremely hardy (-20 °F), deciduous citrus, best in winter when the green stems and huge thorns are exposed and large orange fruits hang on. In spring, white flowers with a sweet fragrance. Plant in containers for the most drama; in the ground for easiest care. 10' in time... a long time. Extremely frost hardy, to USDA zone 5.

Wicked wide and hooked thorns are so scary that they're beautiful. White flowers in early summer and trifoliate green leaves turn orange in fall. 8' x 8' in the ground.
