The little Orange-tree that refused to die..

I know,it's an indoor plant,not garden,but this little fighter astounds me.
I have put it outside where it died(supposedly)cut it down completely,ready to throw it out.
I have had it for years,but since I don't like to pronounce anything dead,when I saw little green coming up I gave it another chance.
Well,look at it now,not big,but still...

Wow Chico, that's amazing!! Look at those oranges too!

I remember my dad buying Mom one but she didn't have much luck with it. Yours is great though!

Well,I bought it as a tropical probably 6 yrs ago,I even put it down in the basement to gracefully die,but it did not...
I never grow anything from seed really,I have no patience and probably not enough time to wait,however the Phlox seeds I got from 14+will bloom this year,lots of buds
I probably would not eat the Oranges,but I kknow you can,they look pretty where they are now.
Orange-Blossoms have a heavenly scent
