Notes and observations:

Seedlings obtained from H. Schneider, CRC, Riverside. Some as Gombru.

11/13/1987, EMN: This accession and CRC 3487 are very different from each other. Foliage of this accession is generally lemon-like but with the appearance of Yuma Ponderosa lemon or Cuban Shaddock in some vigorous shoots. Fruit is medium-large, oval with nose, yellow rind, moderately smooth, no persistent styles. Interior like a lemon but flesh very pale yellow & coarse appearing, seedy. Rind thickness about like a lemon.

11/20/1987, EMN: Dr. Bitters says Kulu is not a varietal name; it is the name of the place or area from which this accession came.


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
