Notes and observations:
Hybrid stock, rooted cutting. Willits citrange x F. margarita. A note particularly attractive tree with foliage a tad sparse, borders on "ratty" appearing. Fruit is small, pear shaped, of a not especially attractive light orange color. Thin rind, flesh tender & juicy, few seeds. Flavor has typical citrange flavor component plus is sour--not edible to me.
