Source: Received as budwood from the Citrus Clonal Protection Program in 2008.

The INRA Station de Recherche Agronomique received this accession from Venezuela in 1984 from an unknown source.

 

Parentage/origins: Unknown. Presumed to be a mutation of a standard navel orange.

 

Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange

 

Season of ripeness at Riverside: December to February

 

Notes and observations:

6/12/2010, RRK: Selected as being of interest to the California citrus industry by members of the California Citrus Nursery Society during a tour of INRA-CIRAD, Corsica, in conjunction with the Congress of the International Society of Citrus Nurserymen in 1997. According to Franck Curk, Curator of the French Citrus Germaplasm Collection, "In our collection the fruit is exactly the same than the Cara Cara. It is a pink salmon flesh navel orange as the Cara Cara orange is". (personal communication to Toni Siebert, ca 2008). Additional information from Franck (email of 10/20/2009) is that "Here in Corsica, Cara Cara navel and California Roja navel are not at the same location, so, some times we notice some differences in ripening time or coloration, but globally they really look like the same. California Roja has been introduced to Corsica from Venezuela in 1984 and Cara Cara has been introduced from Spain in 1991". Although at some point the SRA website provided California as the origin of this variety, it apparently actually was introduced from Venezuela and so the source of the name is unknown. In any case, it is apparently the same or very similar as 'Cara Cara'.  

Availability: Commercially available in California through the Citrus Clonal Protection Program.
