Source: Received as seed from Dick Hamilton, University of Hawaii, 1972.


Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.


Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange


Season of ripeness at Riverside: Unknown at this time.


Notes and observations:

EMN, 2986: Dick Hamilton received 4 fruits from a cooperator in Udet Sand akin, Sabak, North Borneo. He believes that the fruit could have been a form of rough lemon. The fruits, however, had smooth, thin tightly adherant skin, large prominant oil glands, and bitter, acrid, inedible flesh. Polyembryonic. This accession had seedling yellows which was removed by shoot tip grafting (STG 172-1).

EMN, 11/13/1987: Fruit compared with fruit of CRC 2316, Citrus excelsa, and these two accessions appear to be identical in both fruit & foliage characteristics.

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
