ID this orange?
« on: April 12, 2018, 09:37:21 PM »
I picked up one of these oranges in a Latin supermarket a month ago, hoping to find some seeds to use for practice rootstocks. But when I opened it at home, it was definitely a sweet orange. The PLU code is for "small navel", but this fruit had 8-10 viable seeds. The cotyledons are quite rounded. The sign also says "product of D.R" but you can't really trust that if the sign and PLU are wrong.

At this point I'm just curious. What kind of orange is this? Just a small, discolored Valencia? I'm just not an expert on orange types since I usually stick to growing citrus fruit that I can't buy in the grocery store.
