Notes and observations:

This accession was received as seed collected by the donor during a trip to Iran. He stated that the tree from which the seeds were collected represented a typical type of Iranian sweet lime that was not represented in the collection at that time. (RRK, 08/2007).

ISSR markers appeared identical to other sweet limes in collection (PI 539285/CRC 363; PI 37772/CRC 921). (Krueger and Roose, 2003).
