Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, Yuma Ponderosa lemon

Notes and observations:

EMN, 1986: This is listed as a member of the Papeda group because it was so listed in the old accession book. However TCI, Vol. I, pp 364, puts it under aurantifolia in a table of comparison of major classification systems. What is it?

EMN, 1/14/1988: The Citrus Industry doesn't give a description of C. excelsa so here it is: A medium size fruit- medium yellow, basically smooth but variably bumpy. Round with flattened base and blunt nose surrounded by a depressed ring. Rind thin; seedy, flesh ricey, white to yellow, very sour. Used as an indicator plant for tatterleaf- citrange stunt.

 

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
