Barberina – Orange

SKU: 4 Category: Tags: ,

Barberina is a late maturing orange from the blanca or common orange group. It is very similar to Valencia Late, but has a lighter peel colour, slightly lower acids and similar sugars. It is therefore considered a better eating orange and is a good alternative to late-harvest navels. The shape is round to elongate, it is mainly seedless and has a good juice content of 50-55%. The tree has darker, larger leaves and a darker bark compared to Valencia Late.

This variety is rated well by growers due to its eating quality, but also the late harvest (Spain: March to June) and its ability to hang well on the tree (Spain: until July).

Name: Barberina (registered name).

Origin: Barberina is the result of a spontaneous mutation of Valencia Late, discovered in Rafelcofer, Valencia, Spain by Vicente Barber in 1982.

Grown in: Spain
