This accession is associated with the identifier CPB 15072 in archival material maintained at NCGRCD. CPB 15072 is associated with the inactive PI 109709. This number (PI 109709) was assigned after the plants were received in Riverside and so is not annotated in the old CES records. The original name associated with this genotype was 'Pin shan kong yan', however it was recorded in Riverside at the time of receipt as 'Pin shan kong yau', probably due to a typing error. The original name should be used. (RR Krueger, 12/19/2010)
