The orange is America’s favorite fruit. It’s the third-most eaten fresh fruit, behind apples and bananas, and the number one for juice, with two and a half times the consumption of its nearest competitor, apple juice. Perhaps that’s because citrus’ health benefits are legendary. A medium orange or grapefruit provides at least 100 percent of the daily value for vitamin C. And citrus from Burchell Nursery is well known for keeping orchards healthy.
Burchell Nursery provides its customers with the utmost planting flexibility by offering most its varieites as Ready Start® Potted Trees. Please consult with your Healthy Start Trees field representative for current availability and pricing.
