Source: Received as budwood from China, 1970.

 

Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.

 

Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange

 

Season of ripeness at Riverside: Unknown at this time.

 

Notes and observations:

Lindcove nucellar tree was grown from seed from a budwood import fruit in the Rubidoux screenhouse.

EMN, 10/1988: Dr. Bitters put a question mark by this one in the accession book; probably he questions the name.

EMN, 11/23/1988: Medium sized oblate mandarin. Rind light orange in color; peels & sections like gangbusters. Moderately juicy; seeds few, about 1 per section on average. Flavor sweet, fairly good but a bit flat. More rag than desirable.

 

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
