Additional Information:

Originated in Carlsbad, California, by James Reed. Introduced in 1960 from a chance seedling planted in 1948. Fruits ripe May to September according to most literature. At South Coast Field Station (Orange County, Ca) we have found it to be better later in the year. Sets fruit yearly. Fruit may remain on tree for a relatively long time after reaching maturity. Resistant to salt burn. Cold tender.
