Notes and observations:

EMN, 11/9/1987: This fruit is strange; totally different from Perrine (CRC 2458). Fruit has a very long and small neck, more like some gourds than a citrus fruit. It is a small fruit, flesh very dry, very little juice; curiosity value only.


Availability: Not commercially available in California.
