Blood Orange not 'bloody'...any remedy for this?

15 years ago

I know....more of a question for Halloween! LOL! But, before it begins flowering this spring...I wanted to find out if I can do anything about this...

My blood orange tree has plenty of delicious fruit. BUT...the dark red "blood" area of its flesh is usually just around the edges of the skin and a bit in the center. I have yet to get one that looks like the ones you see on TV cooking shows...100% RED. I'd guess mine are about 10-20 % RED on average.

Am I needing to give it a different fertilizer or treat it differently in order to increase the amount of dark red?
