Abstract

Long-time studies of Satsuma mandarin nucellar-seedling lines—derived mainly from a single seed-parent tree—indicate that both genetic change and nucellar embryony may be responsible for earlier fruit coloring, especially in heavy-crop years, and for a consistently higher per cent of soluble solids than in the old parent line.
