Notes and observations

Collected from Row 25- tree 08 in Rio Farms, Monte Alto, Texas, by Robert Krueger and John Bash. USDA accession number T59-8 received as seed from India in 1959 (see Olson et al, 1961, citrus species, varieties and hybrids in Texas, MP-549, texasA & M Univ.) This may be PI 254779, 'Soh niamtra' (received as seed, January 1959 at USDA-PIO). Another Rio Farms accession, 'Soh Siem (T59-7), is also being received (as PI 254732) at the same time and from the same source (office of the Government Friut Experiment Station, Shilong). Both varieties were received at that time at the US Date & Citrus Station in Indio, so it is logical that they were also sent to USDA Weslaco.
