Source: Received as budwood from Japan, via Glen Dale & CCPP, 1979.


Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.


Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange


Season of ripeness at Riverside: Unknown at this time.


Notes and observations:

2/26/1988, EMN: This is a Satsuma-like fruit that was grown in Japan in past years but is fading because of its inability to compete with Satsuma. When first imported it was planted in the Lindcove foundation block; but soon was removed when small fruit size and poor fruit quality became evident.


Availability: No longer commercially available in California. This accession no longer has an approved budsource. Please refer to the CCPP for information on another approved budsource or to start a reintroduction inquiry.
