Source: Received as budwood by John Carpenter, United States Date & Citrus Station, Indio, Ca, 1972.
Parentage/origins: VI spec sheet says this accession traces back to an open pollinated seedling from a large old Nagami tree at UCLA. Pollen parent unknown, EMN 5/87.
Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo
Season of ripeness at Riverside: Year round
Season of flowering at Riverside: June to September
Notes and observations:
EMN, 3/28/1988: Talked to John Carpenter on phone. He says USDCS 61-298 is Nagami seedling grown from Florida. Florida (Orlando) No. 2-24-6, F159.
EMN, 1/1989: This is scheduled for release to the industry for trial as an ornamental in 9/89. It needs a name. M. Roose suggests Indio mandarinquat; and, since no better names have come forth, that's what we will probably call it.
Availability: Commercially available in California through the Citrus Clonal Protection Program.
