Received as seed from Ed Pollock, Parkes, New South Wales, Australia, 1954. Open-pollinated seedling.
C. aurantium 'Bittersweet' x C. sinensis (unknown cultivars, maybe Sathgudi sweet orange)
Rootstocks of accession
Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange
Season of ripeness at Riverside
January to March
Notes and observations
PBL: It is possibly a sport of a bitter orange and Sathgudi sweet orange. It is used as a rootstock for the Sathgudi but is not very good because of its susceptibility to many diseases.
3/1987, EMN: Fruit appears to be a typical sour orange.
2/11/2008: TS & DK: Hybrid of sweet and sour oranges? Fruit looks like common sour orange.
Not commercially available in California.
