A sour orange, edible, but with a very acidic flavor. Bears medium sized fruits that ripen to yellow and orange. Notable for its cold hardiness, with some reports of trees surviving to as low as 10F.
Tree vigorous, upright-spreading, and very thorny. Foliage consists of medium-large, somewhat slender, light green, sharp-pointed, strongly winged leaves, the oil of which is suggestive of bitter orange.
Fruit about grapefruit sized. Rind dark yellow, moderately rough & pebbled; oblate shaped. Rind moderately thick; seedy. Flesh lemon yellow to light orange/ yellow, juicy, sour.
The juicy orange-sized fruit are usually not eaten fresh because of their acid-sour and bitter taste but are sometimes used as a lemon substitute.
