Notes and observations

Identity as given on signs at Jensen's Date Garden somewhat questionable, as signs appear in some instances to have been moved. Information from sign nearby, which might not be in correct location: 'Pink meat. Origin obscure. Introduced to this area by Swingle.' Observed at collection site: leaves appear like pummelo leaves. Should be planted in field and observed.


Not commercially available in California.
