‘Carolina’ (C. mollissima) is a third-generation open-pollinated offspring selected in Alachua, FL, from the widely available Dunstan population. The population is derived from a putative and lost C. dentata tree (described as blight resistant) and three C. mollissima cultivars, ‘Nanking’, ‘Kuling’, and ‘Meiling’ (Note: Morphological characteristics and DNA markers indicate no C. dentata ancestry in the Dunstan population). ‘Carolina’ is reported as particularly sweet, but evaluations by M. Nave suggested that the cultivar’s siblings, ‘Carpentar’ and ‘Revival’, are sweeter (Miller, 2003; Nave, 1998).
