Notes and observations

Not much is known about this introduction at this time. A note on the introduction sheet from CCPP notes: "Hang Ji says high quality pink pummelo." With a name like 'Kao nun' we would expect it to originally be from the Thailand area. However, "kao" means "white" in the other pummelo accessions with "kao" in their name. We shall see.
