Source: Received as seed from Malaysia, via R. Scora, CRC, 1971.


Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.


Rootstocks of accession: C-35 citrange, Yuma Ponderosa Lemon


Season of ripeness at Riverside: Unknown.


Notes and observations:

11/1989, EMN: Trees are not happy. Riverside climate and/or smog does not seem to be good for them, poor trees. Better to keep future propagations in the greenhouse or lathhouse here. No fruit.

11/2017, TJSW: After multiple repropagations, the identity of this accession became suspect. Marker analysis also revealed questionable authenticity. It was therefore dropped from the collection holdings and de-accessioned.

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
