Source: Received as budwood by an unknown source, 1945.


Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.


Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange


Season of ripeness at Riverside: December to January


Notes and observations:

EMN, 2/12/1988: Introduced from Beltsville, Maryland, in 1945. Planted from pots in Field 21 in spring 1947. Buds taken from these trees. Apparently received as potted (or bareroot) trees. This accession had exocortis which was removed by shoot tip grafting (STG 90-3). This is a nice navel orange. It is very similar to Parent Washington, perhaps with a slightly smoother rind and good external color, at least this year. What is supposed to be different about this navel that it was named Paradise? What are its Paradisical attributes? Who Knows?


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
