Notes and observations

Apparently originally a nucellar selection of 'Genova' made at EEA, Famailla, Tucuman by Miguel Garcia (his donor number 82). Rec'd at INTA EEAC 05/23/1995.  From INTA, Estacion Experimental Agropecuaria Concordia, Argentina. Tree maintained in GH as a part of EEAC citrus collection. Mother tree is 10 years old, on Troyer rootstock.

RRK: "This is supposed to be a superior selection of 'Genova'. It is being introduced at the request of Glenn Wright, University of Arizona. (RR Krueger, 06/2006)

Although this accession was sanitized and released from quarantine by NCGRCD, it was delivered to CCPP to for VI processing. Also, it might not be the exact EEAT selection Glenn wanted."
