Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Citrus nobilis, Lour. King Orange. Small trees, with slender twigs and pointed lvs., with very narrowly winged or merely margined petioles: fls. small, white; stamens 18-24: fr. with a loose peel and a hollow pith; seeds usually green inside.—This species comprises several well-marked groups; the original C. nobilis of Loureiro was undoubtedly something very like the King orange, a medium- sized tree with long upright branches, with dark bark, having large depressed globose fr. with a rough thick not very loose skin; segms. usually 12-13; seeds rather numerous, large like those of a sweet orange, white inside. See W. A. Taylor. Yearb. Dept. Agric. 1907, pl. 34. This variety was found by Loureiro growing in Cochin China in the latter half of the 18th century and was intro. into Amer. by Mrs. S. R. Magee, of Riverside, Calif., in 1880, from Saigon, Cochin China, which introduction became known as the King orange. It has frs. of large size, very juicy, and of delicious vinous flavor. Its rough skin seems to be no obstacle to its ready sale at good prices. CH
