Source: Received as budwood from Rio Farms, Monte Alto, Texas, 2003.

 

Parentage/origins: Origin of this selection unknown.

 

Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange

 

Season of ripeness at Riverside: December to January

 

Notes and observations:

RRK, 08/2006:Collected from Rio Farms, Monte Alto, Texas by R Krueger & J Bash. Heinz Wutscher (about 1997) indicated that this selection colors well in Texas. Observed: fruit medium sized, slightly flat, some flesh color showing. The fruit observed at Rio Farms indicates that this selection may develop better color than current selections maintained at Riverside, since south Texas winters are typically mild with smaller diurnal temperature fluctuations. This is probably not the true Vainiglia variety, which is white fleshed and low in acid,but perhaps the Vainiglia Sanguino (pink fleshed due to lycopenes, but not a true blood orange).

 

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