Plant type
Amoa 8 was obtained within the citrus breeding program of the Citrus Research Center (CRA) of Acireale (Catania, Sicily, Italy). It was the result of a hybridization carried out around 1990 between a Moro orange and a Mediterranean mandarin. The curiosity lies in the fact that the original cross was made with the aim of obtaining new pigmented oranges, but the result of this cross turned out to be much more similar to a mandarin. It is a very uncommon hybrid, surprising and colorful with its red-orange peel and dark red flesh, and a taste between a sweet orange and a mandarin.
