Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange

 

Season of ripeness at Riverside: October to December

 

Notes and observations:

USDA 88-2 is a cross between Lee and Nova mandarins. It was developed at the United States Department of Agriculture Station in Orlando, Florida, and has since been evaluated for commercial potential. It is a moderately large tree at maturity. 88-2 is an early season mandarin with small to medium size fruit. The fruit is easy to peel, seedless, and very juicy. The rind is a medium orange color and thin. The flavor is rich and sweet. 

3/11/2008, Mikael Roose and Tim Williams: seedless under all conditions, low probability of causing seeds in other mandarins, early season maturity (November), high brix (13% in November, 15-16% in late December) and very rich, distinctive flavor, pale rind color, mean fruit size 24, round shape (not flattened) with tendency toward a blossom end nipple. Moderately easy to peel. Good holding ability on tree through February. Moderate production with tendency to alternate bear.

 

Availability: Commercially available in California through the Citrus Clonal Protection Program.
