Source: Received as budwood from Japan, via Glenn Dale & CCPP 1979. Received from S. Tsuchiya, Fruit Tree Research Station, Division of Fruit Breeding, Yatabe, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.


Parentage/origins: This is reported to be a graft hybrid of C. obovoidea + Satsuma.


Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange


Season of ripeness at Riverside: Unknown at this time.


Notes and observations:

11/23/1988, EMN: This accession received thermotherapy during processing as an import thru CCPP. External appearance is like a grapefruit with yellow rind splotched with green. Medium rind thickness, moderately seedy. Flesh is BRIGHT ORANGE IN COLOR (Surprise!). Tender, melting, very juicy; pleasant flavor but probably too mild or flat for many tastes.

3/3/2008, DK & TS: Obovata (grapefruit-like) on outside, satsuma on the inside.


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
