Notes and observations
8/7/2007, RRK: In the early 1990s, 6 budlines of 'Owari' satsumas (RCRC 4098, PI 600668/RCRC 4099, RCRC 4100, PI 600669/RCRC 4101, RCRC 4102, RCRC 4103) were collected from Tulare County, California in the hope of finding a superior-performing selection for San Joaquin Valley conditions. However, interest in these quickly waned and they are not currently maintained by CCPP as commercial bud sources. It is not known at this time how they are supposed to differ or be superior to the standard selection of 'Owari' ('Frost Owari', PI 539689/RCRC 3178).
No longer commercially available in California. This accession no longer has an approved budsource. Please refer to the CCPP for information on another approved budsource or to start a reintroduction inquiry.
