Is this an eating orange?
Just never heard of it before, but the selection of oranges here in the north is limited to what growers will ship.

Yes. It is the smaller, sweet variety, sorta of like clementines/Cuties, Mandarin oranges etc.. I liked the tree because it can be grown in a pot. Unfortunately, quite a few of the oranges have fallen off. It is as if the little tree knows how much weight it will be able to tolerate later when the fruits mature. I think I will get about a dozen oranges from this first batch? The tree is less than 3 feet tall.

Sounds great
Wonder If I could grow it?
I grow figs and had a calamondin orange for years but they are too sourer to eat . they have to endure the winter in a sunny window but I put them out in the summer.

Well, I am new to this. But I know that citrus trees have to be protected from frost and any temps below 15-20 degrees, and they love full sunlight. I have seen some places growing indoors as long as they are in front of a very sunny window. You might be a little cold in your region but maybe indoors??
Here are a few articles on it:
