Notes and observations

EMN, 3/28/1988: Talked to John Carpenter on phone. He says USDCS 61-298 is Nagami seedling grown from Florida. Florida (Orlando) No. 2-24-6, F159.

EMN, 1/1989: This is scheduled for release to the industry for trial as an ornamental in 9/89. It needs a name. M. Roose suggests Indio mandarinquat; and, since no better names have come forth, that's what we will probably call it.
