Notes and observations:
1985, EMN: This tree was planted and dedicated by Dr. T. Tanaka of Japan when visiting here in 1928. The tree was balled and brought from place of French Gilman. This accession had seedling yellows, removed by thermotherapy. Kawano-wase is not among the major Wase strains listed in TCI, Vol. I, pp 502-503.
History of the Tanaka tree of Kawano Wase was in letter of W.T. Swingle to H.J. Webber (1928): "This tree is grafted on a Rusk citrange. Practically no satsumas have been grafted from cuttings until last year when we discovered the nurse graft (Y) cutting method of propagation. This tree was sent from Wash. D.C. to Indio several years ago and was transferred from Indio to Banning 2 years ago, I think".
Availability: Commercially available in California through the Citrus Clonal Protection Program.
