Notes and observations

EMN, 12/23/1988: Apparent alternate bearer. Heavy crop but fruit size is still medium to medium-large. Variable shape but generally globose with a depressed apex. Rind medium smooth but puffy. Rind color is light to medium orange. Peels & sections well. Moderately seedy; too much rag. Flavor only fair, somewhat bland. Does not appear to have any commercial potential.


Not commercially available in California.
