Orange essential oil midseason type - Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck - Florida
The favourite mid-season orange in Florida, 'Pineapple' orange originated from seedlings planted c. 1860 near Citra, FL. The fruit are medium large, somewhat flattened on both ends, with a moderately thick, smooth peel that develops a good orange color under cool night conditions. Valencene and aldehyde levels in mid-season oil are typically lower than in the later 'Valencia'. Juice colour and quality are very good.
