Source: Received as budwood from an unknown source at an unknown time.


Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.


Rootstocks of accession: Yuma Ponderosa lemon


Season of ripeness at Riverside: October to December


Notes and observations:

EMN, 1986: This accession came from a tree in 21D which was pencilled in on the 21D record without any notation of CRC number, rootstock, or planting date. Probably no CRC number had ever been assigned, so No. 3822 was assigned about 1981. This accession had exocortis which was removed by shoot tip grafting (STG 188-4).

EMN, 1/14/1988: This probably is pure Mexican lime.


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
