Citrus Limonia Osbeck. Rangpur Lime Trees.
The Citrus Limonia Osbeck is an unusual tree and is actually a hybrid cross between a lemon and a mandarin tree originating in Rangpur in India. Commonly called the Rangpur Lime, it's juice is highly acidic and often used as a substitute for limes. The glossy dark green leaves are highly aromatic and can be used the same as Kaffir Lime leaves to flavour savoury food such as curries. The fruit itself looks more like a mandarin and is a rich orange colour, peeling and segmenting the same way.
Perfect as an ornamental tree too, glossy dark green foliage, beautifully scented white blossom and tasty colourful fruit year after year. A very pretty tree, great for growing in containers on a patio as well as your garden. This tree is self-fertile and has a long fruiting season.
