Xa Doai Orange

Doai Commune (Xa Doai) is now Nghi Dien Commune, Nghi Loc District, Nghe An Province. Nature offers this land having the unique succulent oranges. If these orange varieties are planted in other places, their taste will lose.

There are two kinds of Xa Doai Orange:

- Orange in the shaped of oleaster (qua nhot). Locals called Lot Orange

- Orange in the shaped of gourd (qua bau). Locals called Bau Orange

Xa Doai Orange always become ripe in November and December every year. The skin has reddish yellow colour then dark red but still look fresh with slightly yellow, in painting world they call lime. Outside is a thin skin. If it is chafed, aroma will pervade. Producers use it as flavouring for candy and wine. When cutting into segments you will see the glossy yellow segments, when eating you will feel the sweet of fruit, the faint aroma of flower and a bit of glutinosity on lips like bee's honey.

2.5.7 Major cultivars in Vietnam: Vietnamese use the term

‘Cam’ for any citrus, which resembles orange, and ‘Cam Mat’ for sweet orange (Citrus sinensis). For example, ‘Cam’ is used in front of the cultivar names of many citrus hybrids, not necessarily of orange parentage, as seen in mandarin x orange and mandarin x pummelo hybrids. It is also used for orange x pummelo hybrid such as ‘Cam Chanh’, ‘Cam Chap’, as well as sour orange (C. aurantium), as in ‘Cam Chua’. To confuse the issue, the term ‘Cam Mat’ is not used in front of cultivars of sweet orange, as in ‘Xa Doai’, ‘Van Du’ and ‘Song Con’. All three are major cultivars of northern Vietnam and are probably various forms of Valencia, one of the world’s most popular cultivars of orange. In the South, the very sweet ‘Tieu’ and ‘Duong’ (sugar) are popular. Descriptions of major cultivars of oranges are given below.

Xa Doai: named after the commune where the cultivar originated. It has sparse shoots with sharp thorns. Fruits are spherical or elliptical, 180 to 200 g. with good flavour and rather juicy.
