Citrus Medica 'Cidro'.  Citron Tree

The Citrus Medica 'Cidro', produces very unusual large fragrant yellow skinned fruit. It is documented as probably being one of the original citrus fruits from which all other citrus types developed. The oval shaped fruit can weigh up to 2.5kg and although there is little flesh and juice to the fruit, the thick rind is used for it's amazing flavour in variety of ways; in drinks, desserts, savoury dishes, candied or as marmalade etc. It has a high content of essential oils.
Perfect as an ornamental tree too, large dark green foliage, beautifully scented large white blossom tinted on the outside with pink and amazing fruit year after year. Great for growing in containers on a patio as well as your conservatory or greenhouse.
