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.


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.
