We do not know the size of the largest oranges produced in America, but the London Gardener's Chronicle gives the following account of some large ones produced in England: "We have received from Mr. James Wood, seedsman and florist, of Newport, Isle of Wight, a couple of large oranges, which together weighed 2 lbs. 8 ozs. The largest one weighed 1 lb. 7 ozs., and measured 18 inches in circumference. Mr. Wood states that they were grown with two others of about the same size on a tree about 3 feet high, and 2 feet in diameter of branches, standing in a cool house from which frost and damp are excluded by the use of fire-heat. They are very handsome as decorative objects, but quite useless for dessert".
