One citrus tree growing inside the other

10 years ago

I have some sort of orange tree growing inside of my mandarine tree. It's 5 years old and neither one has beared fruit yet.I'm assuming it's some sort of orange tree because it has long needle like thorns. It was bought at a nursery and just keeps getting bigger and bigger. It's now taller than my mandarine. The mandarine is a lot leafier than the other unidentified one and they both look healthy.

Should I try to pry it out to remove it? I'm afraid I will lose my madarine because the roots are right in the middle of the root ball. I would like to know if anyone knows what type of orange this is and should I remove it?

I posted 1 pic but couldn't figure out how to post more than one photo but if you need more I have them.

Thanks for your time and have a nice day.
