Notes and observations:

7/1960: Seeds were extracted from fruit CRC 2610, 8A-39-44. From 20 seeds: 12 singles, 4 doubles; budwood for this accession taken from double seedling. It was decided to run this tangelo through the seed because of the bud-union disorder on Koethen sweet and possibly C. grandis- may have had cachexia-- JAB.

EMN, 4/1987: Large fruit, yellow to medium orange rind color, peels & sections fairly well; tart, grapefruit-like flavor, moderately seedy; most fruit on the ground this date. This accession and Sacaton tangelo CRC 2609 are NOT alike. This has yellow flesh while 2609 has orange flesh.
