Notes and observations:

This accession had thermotherapy when imported from Florida.

3/1987, EMN: Small fruit, most on ground now. Sunburst is a beautiful dark orange color and smooth rind- these are its only attributes. It is too seedy, too small, a very poor peeler, has some Encore-like spots. Flavor is good.
