This is one of a group of 8 valencia clones selected by University of California Cooperative Extension Specialist Emeritus John Pehrson in the 1950's or 1960's. These were included in the Valencia Strain Trial established a the UC Lindcove Field Station. This accession and Pehrson #4 were selected as being the most promising.
