This accession and Sacaton tangelo CRC 3331 are NOT alike. This has orange flesh, and CRC 3331 has yellow flesh.

EMN, 4/1987: Medium sized fruit, yellow to medium orange, peels & sections readily, flavor sweet and refreshing, few to moderate number of seeds. Almost all fruit on ground now.1/18/89- Flavor good now. Seems seedier this year. Probably too seedy for backyard use.
