Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.


Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange

Notes and observations:

Six seedling budlines were fruited at Lindcove; all appeared identical.

3/23/1987, EMN: Fruit still tart at this time.

2/8/1988, EMN: Appears to be a typical seedy, mid-season sweet orange.

12/1989, EMN: Lab fruit analysis & comparison with Olinda indicates Catlin virtually identical, certainly no better holding for late harvest.

2/26/1990, EMN: Compared to Olinda. Seems virtually identical.


Availability: No longer commercially available in California. This accession no longer has an approved budsource. Please refer to the CCPP for information on another approved budsource or to start a reintroduction inquiry.
