Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967)
"Fruit medium-sized, round or obovate; commonly slightly necked; color orange-yellow; seedy. Rind relatively smooth, thin, fairly free-peeling; axis hollow. Flesh color pale orange-yellow; tender, very juicy; flavor sprightly and subacid. Maturity season early.
Tree vigorous and productive; leaves small to medium, oval-shaped, and pointed.
This variety originated at the U.S. Date and Citrus Station, Indio, California, as a seedling of an unnamed tangelo of grapefruit-tangerine (presumably Dancy) parentage from a pollination made by Swingle in Florida in 1899. Introduced in 1931, San Jacinto has never attained commercial importance. "
Not commercially available in California.
