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


Not commercially available in California.
