Chinotto Orange is sometimes referred to as the Myrtle - Leaf Orange. The Myrtle - leaf orange has been known for some centuries in the Mediterranean as the Italian and French names imply was presumably introduced from China.

The tree flowers and produces crops of small orange fruits of moderate seediness. The fruit matures in the winter and are moderately tart. Great for indoors.
