Source: Received as budwood from the USDA Citrus Repository, Riverside, Calif., 2011.


Parentage/origins: Nucellar selection of 'Olinda' valencia from McEwen Ranch. Original 'Olinda' was a nucellar selection.


Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange


Season of ripeness at Riverside: February to April


Notes and observations:

'Olinda' is one of the most popular selections of 'Valencia' used in California. It is indistinguishable from 'Frost valencia' and is probably of nucellar origin. CCPP records indicate that there is some question as to whether or not this is the same as 'Olinda' CRC 2750/PI 539656, which was derived from the original (apparently nucellar) seedling tree at the Ollie Smith Ranch in Olinda, California.
