Notes and observations
RRK 9/2/2002: "According to David Karp (see Source History): "This accession has been tentatively proposed at the Tintori Nursery as a variegated sport of Tahiti lime or a similar fruit, but the owners also append the notation, 'da classificare', 'needs to be classified.' Both the foliage and the fruit are variegated, but the flesh is straw-colored, and the aroma too seems more indicative of a citron-lemon hybrid."
TJSW, 2022: This accession appears to be more phenotypically similar to a citron-lime or citron-lemon hybrid. Tree produces few fruits that are similar to the size of a key lime. Fruit are seedy with a thickish rind and light green internal flesh color. Leaves are slightly elongated and citron-like. New growth and flowers are purple. Variegation on foliage and fruit is consistent throughout, no reversions observed; however, the tree is still young.
Not commercially available in California.
