Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967)
"Arancino is one of a number of minor Italian varieties listed by Casella (1935a). The highly distinctive fruit is nearly globose, with a very short nipple and thick rind, and very seedy. The tree is vigorous, hardy, and compact, with small spines and leaves. Arancino is very responsive to the forcing treatment under which the fruit occurs in clusters."
