The Valencia Late orange

The Valencia Late is an old Portuguese cultivar, fairly vigorous with assurgent habit and compact foliage.
The leaves are elliptic, medium sized with a small-winged stem. The white, very fragrant flowers grow abundantly in spring months. The fruit is round and pale orange with juicy, bittersweet flesh and few seeds, and remains on the tree until late spring.
