I just noticed that CCPP added Citrus Yuko to their upcoming list. Does anyone know what IPPN Established means?

Never heard of this, had to look it up.  What's the appeal?  It doesn't sound that enticing

Notes and observations:

Notes from T. Tanaka in CITROLOGIA, pg. 76, Osaka, 1961: "YUZU hybrid character, fr size good sized Satsuma, shape resembles Kunembo- rough, orange-yellow, Calyx provides 1g disk ring, rind 5.0 mm, ht 5.0, wid 6.3 cm, pulp poor taste, apex rounded, base pointed, 8 seeds, seeds green polyembryonic. 2/26/88- Fruit way past maturity now, but Tanaka's description (see above) seems pretty good for this accession.--EMN.

I know a handful of Chefs that worked in Japan that all want it. Used as a flavoring like a Yuzu.
