					                                      ORMUS Oranges

The two oranges on the right were watered with ORMUS precitate from the Great Salt Lake. The orange and
grapefruit on the left came from the local supermarket. (Photo by Dana Dudley) The orange on the far right
came from a tree which was watered with ORMUS precipitate for four years and the smaller orange just to the
left of it came from a tree that was only watered with ORMUS precipitate for two years.

To give you an idea of the relative sizes of these oranges I took a picture of a slightly larger supermarket orange
next to a cantaloupe melon. The cantaloupe is the same size as the largest orange as you can see by comparing it
                                          to the picture directly below it.
Following is a chart which compares the sizes of the various fruits in order of their size. The circumferences
were measured but most of the weights were estimated based on a ratio of the measured weight of the large
supermarket orange.

Below is another size comparison between the two year ORMUS orange, the four year ORMUS orange and the
small supermarket orange. In this combined picture each of the oranges is in a standard Pyrex™ one quart
measuring cup.

The picture below shows Dana holding these same three oranges after they have been sliced in half. The
supermarket orange is on the left, the four year ORMUS orange is in the center and the two year ORMUS
orange is on the right. The two year ORMUS orange looks larger by comparison because it is closer to the

Both of the large oranges were grown in Brazil ORMUS minerals. The small orange was purchased from a
supermarket in North Carolina.

There are early indications that the plants grown with ORMUS are more resistant to insects and disease and
have a longer growing season due to frost and drought resistance.
