Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck
Received as budwood from Florida Budwood Registration Program, Winterhaven, Fl, 1988.
Apparent this variety is a selection from a mutated branch from a normal Valencia.
Rootstocks of accession
Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange
Season of ripeness at Riverside
March to July
Notes and observations
Jack Hearn: This is a chimera and could revert to normal Valencia through inadvertant selection of mutant bud.
12/1989, EMN: We probably should not release from any trees which have not fruited. Darker color is in both rind and flesh (juice).
Dave Gumpf: Deep orange colored flesh. Matures same as other Valencias. Good crops on citrange and rough lemon. Only real advantage over other Valencias is the deep flesh color.
