Notes and observations
Cotyledons have tinge of green but rather light. Seed very similar in shape and size to tangerine.--HJW.
This was originally identified as C. macroptera by Dr. Tanaka on a visit here in 1928 but Dr. Bitters says it is Cabuyao, the smooth fruited form of C. hystrix.--1984
This accession had seedling yellows, removed by thermotherapy (Thermo. 1128-27).--EMN 1985
EMN, 1/14/1988: Medium size, very smooth rind, globose to pyriform. Yellow at maturity but many fruits fall when still green. Rind medium-thin; seedy; flesh light green to yellow-green, ricey, little juice, sour. Leaves have a very wide petiole-like C. ichangensis.
Not commercially available in California.
