Source: Received as budwood by Robert Krueger and John Bash from Rio Farms, Monte Alto, TX, 1997.


Parentage/origins: Parents unknown. Possibly of Australian origin.


Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange


Season of ripeness at Riverside: January to March


Notes and observations:

RRK: This accession was received in Texas in 1963, therefore it is possibly the same as 'Smooth Flat Seville' (CRC 4079), which was received by USDA Orlando as seed from Australia in 1963 from Lilian R. Fraser (formerly Chief Biologist of the B.C.R.1., Department of Agriculture, Rydalmere, N.S.W.) This may be a distant selection of the Smooth Flat Seville types…'best selection of Smooth Flat Seville' (HK Wutscher, 1997). 

Availability:  Soon to be commercially available in California through the Citrus Clonal Protection Program. Click here to order budwood.
