Source: Received as budwood from a normal Cara Cara navel orange tree in the Citrus Variety Collection, 2006.

 

Parentage/origins: A bud mutation on a branch of a normal Cara Cara navel orange.

 

Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange

 

Season of ripeness at Riverside: December to January

 

Notes and observations:

During a visit in Sept, 2004 Jose Chaparro stated that all variegated ‘Cara Cara’ budsports had pigmented fruit. When skepticism was expressed, he demonstrated in the CVC by finding several variegated sports which all had pigmented fruit. Therefore, Ottillia ‘Toots’ Bier collected budwood from behind a pigmented fruit on a variegated twig and had Toni Siebert propagate two trees in the CVC GH 16-27. The trees were slow-growing but after a few years they fruited in the GH and had pink pigmented fruits. The following year it was decided to accession and plant them in the CVC.

 

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
