This variety is probably a lemon, sweet orange, and mandarin hybrid.
In 1818 the botanist Antoine Risso stated that he first observed this plant, called the “red-flowered Chinese orange” in 1815 at a nursery garden in Paris, where it had been imported from England, although it originally came from Otaheite (probably modern-day Tahiti, in Polynesia). In 1839 Giorgio Gallesio, a diplomat and official of the Republic of Genoa and a keen botanist, also described the plant, writing that the “Otaheite orange is one of the new citruses to enrich Europe after the extension of trade to India, and seems to be a sweet variety of orange”.
The plant is small with shiny green, ovate-lanceolate leaves with alate petiole. The buds are purplish and the flowers white and fragrant. The small, oval fruits are rounded at either end with smooth orange rind and sweet, juicy flesh. The plant is remontant, highly productive, and cold hardy.
