Photos by Toni Siebert, CVC, 4/11/2008. Photo rights. C-35 left, Carrizo right, 25 year old trees.
Source: Received as budwood from Buds from tree east of Director's residence, Riverside, Ca, 1942.
Parentage/origins: Buds were furnished by Dr. Batchelor.
Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange
Season of ripeness at Riverside: March to July
Notes and observations:
10/28/1942: Budded to Koethen sweet seedlings in Field 21
1986, EMN: This accession had exocortis, removed by shoot tip grafting .
6/1989, EMN: Fruit compared with Olinda Valencia: This fruit is not seedless; seems to have about half as many seeds as Olinda. Fruit is slightly larger, coarser, and more elongate than Olinda this season- this may be a light crop effect.
4/11/2008, DK & TS: The few fruits that were selected were seedless. The rind is pebbly and the fruit is more elongate than a typical Valencia. Fruits seem to cluster on the tree.
Availability: Not commercially available in California.
