Photos by David Karp, CVC, 2/11/2008. Photo rights.
Source: Received as seed from Ed Pollock, Parkes, New South Wales, Australia, 1954. Open pollinated seedling.
Parentage/origins: C. aurantium 'Bittersweet' x C. sinensis (unknown cultivars, maybe Sathgudi sweet orange)
Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange
Season of ripeness at Riverside: January to March
Notes and observations:
PBL: It is possibly a sport of a bitter orange and Sathgudi sweet orange. It is used as a rootstock for the Sathgudi but is not very good because of its susceptibility to many diseases.
3/1987, EMN: Fruit appears to be a typical sour orange.
Availability: Not commercially available in California.
