Source: Received as seed from Renmark, South Australia, 2001.


Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.


Rootstocks of accession: C-35 citrange


Season of ripeness at Riverside: Unknown at this time.


Notes and observations:

RRK, 8/2007: Seed from trees at Agricultural Research and Advisory Station, Dareton, contributed to Toots Bier via Ian Tolley. This was one of two seed lots received from Ian Tolley with the hope of establishing accessions of old, historical varieties for which propagative material could not be secured in the USA. This introduction is apparently supposed to represent a traditional sweet orange type from the Mediterranean area, not to be confused with older varieties called 'Mediterranean' in California or Florida.


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
