Source: Received as budwood from the Citrus Research Center, Riverside, 1957.


Parentage/origins: Willowleaf mandarin x Valencia orange


Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange


Season of ripeness at Riverside: October to December


Notes and observations:

Used in Baldwin Park QD rootstock trials. Looks promising as a rootstock.

EMN,1/18/1989: A small, round, orange tangor-- most fruit on ground already at this date. Sweet & juicy, flavor fair to good, but too small and seedy for eating fruit potential.


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
