Notes and observations:

6/1986, EMN: Sour orange, very prolific. from root cutting. old vigorous trees at Olivelands. This accession was discarded from the variety collection about 1979; but Dr. W.P. Bitters thought it should be reinstated and so collected budwood from the original source for the trees planted in field in 1985.

2/26/1988, EMN: Appears to be a typical sour orange.

3/13/2008, DK & TS: Productive, typical sour orange, but rind seems thicker than average. 


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
