Notes and observations

1950, Chapot: Like Granitos sour of Algeria.

2/24/1988, EMN: Appears similar to but different from 3289 (var. Salicifolia). Most leaves on this accession are wider but many are very long and thin as on CRC 3289. Compact tree. Fruit is typical sour orange; perhaps not quite as sour as the average.

1/18/1989, EMN: Fruit is somewhat smaller than other sours this year.

2/11/2008, OJB, TS & DK: Ornamental tree; fairly large fruit size, round; typical thick rind; seedy, very juicy; tastes bittersweet, a good culinary prospect.


Not commercially available in California.
