Notes and observations
1/14/1988, EMN: From 41 seeds: 32 singles, 8 doubles, 1 triple. This probably is a papeda type. Leaves have a wide petiole but it is much smaller than C. ichangensis. Fruit resembles a sour orange in shape (but slightly more oblate), color, and size; but rind is fairly smooth. Most of fruit is on the ground now. Rind is of medium thickness; flesh orange/yellow, juicy, sour.
10/1988, WPB: This is NOT Soh Niangrang.
10/1988, EMN: WPB doesn't say what it might be. Therefore I am not inclined to change the name until until we know better what to call it and where to put it.
8/1989, EMN: Dr. Bitters says this is not a papeda.
11/29/2007, DK & TS: Large fruit, orange when ripe, juicy orange flesh, reasonably palatable--perhaps a papeda/sweet orange hybrid? Small winged petiole.
Not commercially available in California.
