Notes and observations:

Not much is known about this introduction at this time. A note on the introduction sheet from CCPP notes: "Hang Ji says high quality pink pummelo." With a name like 'Kao nun' we would expect it to originally be from the Thailand area. However, "kao" means "white" in the other pummelo accessions with "kao" in their name. We shall see. (RR Krueger, 07/08/2011)


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.
