Source: Received in an unknown form in approximately 1938.

Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.

Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange

Season of ripeness at Riverside: October to November

Notes and observations:

Medium size, round to slightly oval; yellow, slightly rough, thick rind; seedy; flesh white with very slight pink tinge in outer edge of segments and in albedo; flavor fair to good, but tart.

1986, EMN: Not pink. TCI, Vol. I, pp 538, lists a Pandan Bener and a Pandan Wangi; whether or not this accession is one of those is not known. Your guess is as good as mine.

1/13/1988, EMN: About 1/4 of fruit on ground. Medium size, round to slightly oval, yeloow, slightly rough rind. Thick rind; seedy; flesh is white with very slight pink tinge in outer edge of segments of flesh and in albedo. Flavor fair to good but tart.

11/1988, EMN: Oldest accession card I came across, probably typed about 1940, lists this as Pink grapefruit 10312 Pan Dan Robinson. So is it Pandan or Pan Dan? And who was Robinson? And why didn't Robinson list whether it came to us as budwood or seed? And perhaps the ultimate question at this point in time is: Who cares?

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
