Notes and observations
EMN, 11/9/1987: Original Marcy Ranch trees purchased from Frank May, a nurseryman who is reported to have imported the budwood from Mexico. Fruit similar to that of Mexican lime, but tree characters suggest that it may be a hybrid. Fruit compared with Mexican lime fruit- it is very similar, virtually indistinguishable.
