Notes and observations:

6/12/2010, RRK: This variety was selected by former UC Riverside Staff Research Associate Ottillia "Toots" Bier during a tour of the SRA, San Giuliano, by the California Citrus Nursery Society in conjunction with the Congress of the International Society of Citrus Nurserymen in 1997. It was chosed as a curiosity due to the leaf morphology, which is twisted and distorted. Although it was received in Corsica from Morocco, it is likely that is represents a older type of citrus as shown in the works of Ferrarii, Risso et Poteau, etc. These authors show many types of citrus that are characterized according to fruit or leaf morphology. I cannot find the word "lacinié" in any French online dictionary. Perhaps its meaning is similar to "lacio" in Spanish, which would be consistent with its appearance. Readers are invited to comment on this to me via email.
