Orange Tree Flower Buds

Orange juice, here we come! My little souvenir from Florida is finally budding flowers. Now I have to read up on self-pollination. That sounds like some sort of sick joke, but seriously, I have to use a cotton swab and do the deed since there are no eligible bachelor orange trees in the area. UPDATE: the bees went absolutely ape-shit for the flowers when they bloomed, so no self-pollination for this guy.
