Notes and observations:

From Japan. This is the most important economic citrus in Huangyen in Chekiang province where it is called Pentitsae (Early local orange). Cultivated at Okitsu under the Nidonari which was described by Y. Tanaka as a new cultivar. The true succosa has extremely short plump vesicles which stand on segment wass to a great extent. The most characteristic feature of the present species is to have arched segment walls in one direction at a certain part of fruit observable in transversely halved sections. Looks like Sanbokan--WPB 10/66. 3/87- Large, rough, thick rinded, yellow fruit- flavor palatable--EMN.


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
