Source: Received as budwood from Joe Furr, USDCS, Indio, CA. From Yuma, Arizona, 1958.

 

Parentage/origins: Fortunella sp. x (Poncirus trifoliata x Citrus sp.)

 

Rootstocks of accession: Cleopatra mandarin, Calamondin

 

Season of ripeness at Riverside: Unknown at this time.

 

Notes and observations: 19-15-7 refers to location at Yuma.

EMN,1/20/1989: A more attractive tree than either Sinton or Thomasville. Fruit slightly larger than Thomasville, much larger than Sinton; darker orange rind color than Thomasville, not quite as dark as Sinton. As an ornamental, this one would be my choice over Sinton & Thomasville. None of the 3 are really edible but this one is nearest to edible in my opinion.

 

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
