Notes and observations:

2/8/1988, EMN: This orange much resembles Cadenera but is inferior in that the fruit is much seedier. A fairly typical seedy sweet orange; flesh a bit coarse, flavor only fair.

Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967):

"  A moderately seedy, midseason Spanish variety that much resembles Cadenera, Cadena Punchosa is inferior in that the fruit is much seedier.  In addition, Gonzalez-Sicilia (1963) reports that the juice content is lower, the flavor less rich, and the season of maturity a little later.  Chapot reports that in Morocco these differences are not evident.  Cadena Punchosa has largely been replaced with less seedy varieties and is no longer planted."

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
