Rhode Red Valencia orange
Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck
Photos by Toni Siebert (left and center) & David Karp (right), CVC, 4/11/2008. Photo rights. Carrizo, 17 year old tree.
Source: Received as budwood from Florida Budwood Registration Program, Winterhaven, Fl, 1988.
Parentage/origins: 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.
