Parentage/origins: Parents unknown.

Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange

Season of ripeness at Riverside: October to November

Notes and observations:

Smooth, ovate, thick rind; seedy, light pink, good flavor; medium size.

Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967):

" Fruit large, broadly obovate to short pyriform with shallow depression at apex; nearly seedless.  Light yellow at maturity in California, but probably pink-tinted in semitropical climates.  Rind medium-thick; surface smooth; tightly adherent.  Segments numerous and carpellary membranes moderately tough, but commonly split open at axis at maturity.  Flesh coarse-grained, pink-tinged; very juicy; flavor grapefruit-like (subacid with trace of bitterness).  Late in maturity. 
      Tree vigorous, very large, and spreading; leaves typical—broad-pointed; twigs and shoot growth faintly pubescent.
      This clone, which was received by the Citrus Experiment Station, Riverside, from the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1929 under the name Siamese Pink (CES 2246) corresponds ell with the variety Siam, named and described by Wester (1917).  According to Wester, it was introduced into the Philippine Islands in 1913.  In California, when fully ripe it is clearly one of the best in flavor, although sometimes it has a trace of bitterness."
