It can reach a height of 7-15 metres, unlike its cousin the bitter orange (C. aurantium) you won’t find sweet oranges growing in the wild, only in cultivated areas. The Leaves are alternate, oval and 4-10cm in length, with small round toothed edges, dark glossy green in colour on the upper side and paler green on the underside.
