Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967):
This so-called Florida variety in all respects is indistinguishable from Valencia. In all probability, it represents a nucellar clonal budline of that variety and hence should be called Lue Gim Gong Valencia.
Availability: Not commercially available in California.
