Notes and observations:

Notes by Pauline Mooney and Peter Anderson, MAF Technology, Keri Keri Hort Research Station, June 1991 in "The Orchardist": A Washington navel budwood line imported from NSW, Australia, by Gordon Johnson, Keri Keri, NZ in the late 1930s. As of 1991 it was the standard cultivar in the Keri Keri district. Fruit matures from July to early September. The tree is vigorous with a semi-upright habit. The fruit is large, has a globose shape, and an orange rind color. The rind is moderately thick (5-7 mm) and difficult to peel. The flesh is orange in color, sweet, juicy, and seedless, but difficult to segment. An excellent quality early-season navel orange. Johnson is available without restriction.

 

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