I imagine that itd require a mixture between two different varities of the same orange. Then that orange would be sterile and when u plant the seeds of this hybrid the seeds are underdeveloped. This all leads ultimately to GMO's ....another reason why a banana at the grocery store doesnt contain seeds.

can't they reproduce vegetatively? I know bananas can, because the reason they don't have any seeds is not the work of some genetics geek, it's because they are triploid.
