Notes and observations

RRK: This accession was received in Texas in 1963, therefore it is possibly the same as 'Smooth Flat Seville' (CRC 4079), which was received by USDA Orlando as seed from Australia in 1963 from Lilian R. Fraser (formerly Chief Biologist of the B.C.R.1., Department of Agriculture, Rydalmere, N.S.W.) This may be a distant selection of the Smooth Flat Seville types…'best selection of Smooth Flat Seville' (HK Wutscher, 1997). 


Soon to be commercially available in California through the Citrus Clonal Protection ProgramClick here to order budwood.
