It grows on a bushy tree with thorns. Temples are mostly grown in Florida and Israel; they don’t grow well in California.
Very good for eating out of hand, or juicing.
Temples are a hybrid that occurred naturally between oranges and tangerines. The Temple tree was discovered in Jamaica by a man named Boyce in 1896, who send samples sent around Florida. A man named W.C. Temple got some budwood samples, propagated them by grafting them onto other rootstock, and recommended them to a friend of his, an H.E. Gillett who owned a nursery. Gillett named them after his friend Temple, and began selling the trees in 1919. Cultivation took off in popularity in 1940.
