Notes and observations

EMN, 2986: Dick Hamilton received 4 fruits from a cooperator in Udet Sand akin, Sabak, North Borneo. He believes that the fruit could have been a form of rough lemon. The fruits, however, had smooth, thin tightly adherant skin, large prominant oil glands, and bitter, acrid, inedible flesh. Polyembryonic. This accession had seedling yellows which was removed by shoot tip grafting (STG 172-1).

EMN, 11/13/1987: Fruit compared with fruit of CRC 2316, Citrus excelsa, and these two accessions appear to be identical in both fruit & foliage characteristics.


Not commercially available in California.
