Are they eatable?   or just ornamental?   When I traveled to Arizona for the first time I saw all these orange trees everywhere but the oranges were just ornamental  they were not good to eat

These plants produce exotic fruits for the princely families 
who lived there in the 17th S-18eS.
They are edible, Thomas smile
