This variety, described by Risso in 1818, is of uncertain origin but in morphological terms it could be an orange x lemon hybrid.
The tree is medium sized and thorny, with compact bushy habit, assurgent growth and is fairly productive. The large leaves are light green and elliptic with dentate blade and winged petiole. The fragrant white flowers grow mainly in clusters on the branches. The fruit is about the size of a lemon, obovoid and slightly pear-shaped with the remains of the style at the apex. The rind is smooth, average thickness, and yellowy-orange when ripe. The flesh is juicy with a pleasant flavour and numerous seeds.
