I have a orange tree which has fruit on from last year and now I have blossom and baby new fruit. It has been in the conservatory all winter and I am now going to re-pot it for summer outside. It is only a small pot 9ins across the top, are these edible and should
I remove them. More like little tangerines!!!



Yes they are. Try one and see! If they are the very small ones you can probably eat the peel as well. If you want to eat them then yes, you should remove them! Otherwise they will eventually dry up and fall off. But they look pretty until then if you leave them. Decisions, decisions!

Most varieties of oranges ripen between December and April, but sometimes the only way to tell is to pick and taste! Here's hoping that yours aren't already overripe.
