Source: Received as budwood from A. Harty, New Zealand, date unknown.

 

Parentage/origins: Probably a nucellar seedling selection of Valencia.

 

Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange

 

Season of ripeness at Riverside: March to July

 

Notes and observations:

A. Harty:  Harward Valencia (Harward Late) originated at Tauranga as a seedling (probably nucellar) of Valencia. Fruit is said to be indistiguishable from Valencia and overall perfomance is superior in New Zealand. This is a budline selection of Harward Late made by John Wilson, Keri Keri. According to A. Harty: fruit mature from November to February; tree is moderately vigorous with rounded bushy habit and a consistantly high yield; fruit medium to large; globose to oblique in shape; the rind thick (7-8 mm); moderately easy to peel and segment; flesh orange when mature; moderately sweet (up to 6 seeds per fruit); a good quality late maturing Valencia orange.

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

" This New Zealand variety is a seedling of Valencia with fruit that is indistinguishable from its parent.  The tree is vigorous, large, and productive, and since its overall performance is thought to be superior it seems likely to replace Valencia in New Zealand.
      Harward Late originated at Tauranga and probably represents a clonal budline of nucellar seedling origin.  The name Harward Valencia would therefore seem more appropriate. "

 

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