This is a dwarf species of the citrus family. As grown on Citrus trifoliata in Florida it makes a small, handsome bush. It is a heavy bearer of golden yellow fruit not often more than one inch in diameter. The rind is sweet, and unlike most fruits it is eaten entire, only rejecting the seeds. It is used also for marmalades and preserves. It is found at every home place on the gulf coast and in California, but so far as known it is not grown anywhere in a commercial way. At the North it is often found in sitting-rooms in large pots worked on the trifoliata, loaded with fruit. It is by no means a delicate shrub, as it will thrive in a living-room where a geranium can be grown. In frosty climates it seems much hardier than the orange.
