Notes and observations:

Dr. Nagpal of Punjab, India, saw this accession in 1949. Said similar to, if not identical with, "Nasnaran" from Ceylon. Giving good results as a stock for them to date, difficult to transplant. This was also identified by Ochse in 1949 as C. amblycarpa.--WPB.

EMN, 3/1987: Basically it is a small sour mandarin. Tiny yellow fruit, all on ground now.
