Source: Received as budwood from Dr. Joe Furr, USDCS, Indio, CA, 1968.
Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.
Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange
Season of ripeness at Riverside: January to March
Notes and observations:
2/8/1988, EMN: Large, vigorous trees. A typical seedy sweet orange with smallish fruit size this year- early ripening (by taste test). This accession appears identical to CRC 2856, Cadenera Fina, except that 2856 tastes a bit tarter at this time.
Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967):
Fruit medium-sized, globose to slightly oval; apex somewhat depressed; areole ring faint or lacking; seeds few or none. Moderately well-colored. Rind medium-thin and surface smooth to finely pebbled. Flesh very juicy and flavor and aroma excellent. Holds well on tree and retains quality. Medium-early in maturity (preceded by Salustiana and Hamlin).
Availability: Commercially available in California through the Citrus Clonal Protection Program.
