|Hybrid parentage||Citrus sinensis × Poncirus trifoliata|
|Cultivar||Rusk, Troyer, Carrizo|
|Breeder||Herbert John Webber & Walter Tennyson Swingle|
The purpose of this cross was to attempt to create a cold hardy citrus tree (which is the nature of a trifoliate), with delicious fruit like those of the sweet orange. However, citranges are generally bitter.
There is a carrizo citrange and there is a troyer citrange. Both are resulting of a hybrid between the trifoliate orange and the Washington navel orange. There is also a cultivar called Rusk which is resulting from a cross between a Ruby orange and a trifoliate orange.
