Canaliculata Citrus sp. Hybridní citrus
a frutto incannellato, Scannellato
'Canaliculata' is a cross of lemon and orange that has been cultivated in Toscan area since the 16th century. It is sometimes filed along with other Citrus aurantium varieties (mostly 'Consolei' ('Canaliculata') variety), but this is a very usual mistake.
'Canaliculata' is quite high tree with dark green leaves, serrated leaf edges and narrow petioles. Its young shoots are usually red or at least have a hint of red. The white flowers are rather large and fragrant. Slightly flattened fruit is average in size and has many different shapes, from oval with distinctive pointed nipple to spherical. Its rind is usually yellow-orange or orange, when the fruit is fully ripe, with several ridges and ribs. It is not mentioned in the historical records, but there is a description of similar plant by J. Ch. Volkamer, who called it "Aranzo stellato dolce". This description however lacks the description of pointed nipple. Other than that however, 'Canaliculata' is very popular decorative cultivar.
