Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange

Notes and observations:

6/1952, WPB:  This does not appear to be paperrind--it appears to be a Valencia.

3/23/1987, EMN: This accession had seedling yellows, removed by thermotherapy. The rind is not thin-appears mis-labelled.

2/08/1988, EMN: Fruit compared with Valencia and it do appear to be one.

4/16/2008, TS: The rind is not thin, appears to be a regular Valencia-type.

Availability: Not commercially available in California.
