. On the weekend, I did some gardening and decided to pick some of the oranges. This is the 3rd year that we're getting a lot of fruits from this orange tree.. I usually give some of them away and the rest, I peel , slice into wedges and freeze them for juicing . That way, we have a supply of orange juice all summer..They are the sweetest orange I have tasted I have yet to open that orange pretending to be a lemon.. This is the first time I saw an orange this shape. I can't wait to see what it's look like inside..lol .. I can't decide whether to peel it or to slice it.. If I slice it, should I slice it crosswise or lengthwise ?.. lol what a huge decision to make ..ahahah! Anyway, have you ever seen an orange pretending to be a lemon?..Or are there oranges of different varieties in that shape?.. Bess

Never saw an orange in that shape before. I think I would peel it. It sure does look like a lemon.

That is an unusual shape. You're lucky to have an orange tree. I would love to have a plentiful supply of oranges.

If you love orange, you can plant one even in a pot, they grow and will give you fruits within two years ..

@epiffanie I hadn't thought about that, planting in a pot. I assumed that the climate here would be too cold for oranges to grow.

@5thHouse If you have it in a pot leave the pot in a patio away from the cold in winter, it might thrive..

Yes we have lemon tree but it has round fruits .. I don't know what happened to this one orange that changed it's shape though because all the other fruits are normal..

I have not seen orange in oblong form. That looks amazing. I would cut it crosswise if I were you.

That is a very weird shape for an orange. I guess it's just the way that particular one decided to grow.

The oranges that i see here are all round shaped . I envy you for having a lemon tree. You can always have a lemon juice . I love lemon juice .

Yes lemon juice is refreshing .. I always add it our drinking water .. But we also have calamansi tree which has a more tangy taste to it ..

@epiffanie it does look like an orange. I wonder if it can give you a tarter flavor. Poor orange, I think it's having an identity crisis.

Oh wow, that's funny. I've never seen something like that. How nice to have citrus trees, we can't grow them here, too cold. I know squash will sometimes get funny looking...

Hahaha! At first I thought it was an orange but just distorted and somehow it has a lemon shape. It's my first time to see a lemon with the same color as an orange. I find it pretty cool though :D

That is one strange orange. It almost looks like some pollen got mixed up on the tree and created a "lemorange" or something.

I don't know of a variety of orange that is that shape. Maybe you've discovered - or created - a new variety.

An orange tree? O, how I wish I could also grow an orange tree to bear fruits here in Calgary . . . All we have are two apple trees in our backyard. Oranges (mandarin) are one of my favorite fruits. . avocado, bananas, and grapes are also my favorite. Oranges (even the color is orange) are always on the table at home . . like these in the above photo.

What a lovely photo! thanks for sharing .. you could pot plant an orange so in winter you could just keep it under your pergola out of snow .. maybe it'll grow ..

It is really intriguing to me why this one orange decided to take a different shape ....
