Notes and observations:
CPB number should be 40693 according to records from D. Hutchison--R.K. Soost 12/79. Sunrise (K-Early) tangelo is described in TCI, Vol. I, pp 547, but this accession is very probably not the same cultivar since it came to CRC in 1936. In the description of K-Early, it is stated: "K-Early is sometimes incorrectly called Sunrise, a name preempted by an older, very different, and little-known tangelo." 4/87- Medium-large, medium orange rind color with reddish blush. Peels & sections readily. Flavor good, slightly tart, seeds small, few to moderate number. Most fruit on ground now.--EMN.
Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967):
"Fruit medium size, slightly subglobose; color yellowish-orange; seedy; rather acid. Very early maturity. Somewhat resembles the Orlando in appearance.
Availability: Not commercially available in California.
