WPB: Located on north side of street between Euclid and Mountain Ave., 3rd row east of house, 3rd tree north of road. Planted in 1884 and budded to grapefruit in 1896. Widely used as a rootstock especially by R.M. Teague Nursery, San Dimas. Mr. Buffington budded Hall's grapefruit 1896-1898 on orange trees (Trees came from Florida in 1888), Navels on sour stock. Scions from A.P. Harwood seedling from corner of 22nd and Euclid avenue, Upland. Hall tree produced 30 boxes. Height of tree is 30-35 ft. Dr. Batchelor talked with Mr. Buffington who, as a small boy, heloed plant the trees in the orchard- he is now 75 yrs. old (1953). Remembers the orchard was pltd in 1888, trees came from Florida. There are navels, Valencias, and seedlings in the lot and not individually labelled. Two trees were top-worked in the limbs to a seedling grapefruit in 1896-1898. The Hall grapefruit is probably on a sweet seedling- but not certain.
