Description: Buddha's Hand citron is a tree citrus with a deep lemon yellow colour when mature. The fruit morphs from small and purple, to green, and then yellow, splitting at the opposite end of the tree's stem forming segments that have a wild finger-like appearance. A fruit will have its own unique shape and can range in size, from a large lemon to a small melon. Buddha's Hand citron features an oily rind with a fragrant sweet lemon scent. Its flesh is void of juice, pulp, and seeds, and is inedible in its raw form. Buddha's Hand citron is commonly utilized for its zest and has a flavour that is described as a blend of bitter and sweet acidity. Harvest in late fall through early winter months. 10th century AD.

Description: Small and shrubby with an open growth habit. The new growth and flowers are flushed with purple and the trees are sensitive to frost. The leaves are oblong but slightly pointed and somewhat rumpled with serrate margins. The fruit looks somewhat like an oblong lemon, but with a shape that approximates the flame of a candle. The mature fruit is considerably larger than a lemon. The rind is yellow, glossy, thick and bumpy. It is very fragrant, with a distinctive aroma of violets derived from beta-ion one. The fruits hold well on the tree. Etrog primarily are grown for Jewish ritual use in the Sukkot harvest festival, held in September or October. Recorded from the time of Alexander Jannaeus (104-78 B.C.). Blemished specimens, and fruits from grafted trees, are sometimes sold for culinary use. The rind is used to make preserves, and as a flavouring ingredient for savoury dishes, desserts and alcoholic beverages.

Description: Eustis, Lakeland, and Tavares. Their importance is approximately in that order. All are characterized by fruits that closely resemble the West Indian lime in size, form, and composition and hence are reasonably acceptable substitutes. Eustis and Lakeland also closely approach the West Indian lime in colour. Tavares, however, exhibits some of the orange coloration characteristic of the kumquat and the pink coloration of the flower buds which occurs in the West Indian lime. All of the limequat are more cold-resistant than the lime parent but considerably less so than the kumquat. 1909

Description: Kumquat-Tangerine Hybrid. This hybrid came from a Nagami tree; the pollen parent is suspected to be Dancy mandarin. This cultivar produces profuse numbers of a very attractive, necked fruit which is light to medium orange coloured the shape of a Minneola tangelo, and about three times the size of Nagami kumquat fruits. It is probably too tart for most palates, but seems somewhat less tart than its Nagami parent. 1972

Description: Distinguished by their rounded versus oval shape and their sweetness. Often simply referred to as the sweet kumquat. Meiwa kumquats are entirely edible, rind, flesh and the occasional soft seeds. Meiwa kumquats have a thick, smooth oily peel with aromatic citron fragrances and sweet flavour. Flesh is not overly juicy but still very flavourful and bit tart. Only by eating both the skin and flesh will its perfect sweet-tart flavour balance be experienced. Harvest late winter through early spring. Meiwa in its native Chinese language translates to "golden orange". 1924

Description: The colour varies from dark green when immature to a yellowish green when ripe. All green lime types turn fully yellow when mature and soon thereafter drop from the tree. To avoid confusion with Lemons, Limes are collected when still green. The Mexican lime is at its juiciest and best medium ripe, when still partly green. If it is allowed to mature on the tree it loses some of its typical flavour and becomes less juicy. This is the Key lime of food recipes. Both the juice and the rind oil of Mexican lime have an inimitable and unique lime flavour.

Description: C. Limetta. Fruits are oval and green, ripening to yellow, with greenish pulp. The pith is white and about 5mm (0.20") thick. Despite the name sweet lime, the fruit is more similar to a greenish orange in appearance. As the name sweet lime suggests, the flavour is sweet and mild, but retains the essence of lime. The lime's taste changes rapidly in contact with air, and will turn bitter in a few minutes, but if drunk soon after being juiced, the taste is sweet. The flavour is a bit flatter than most citrus due to its lack of acidity. It can be compared to limeade and pomelo.

Description: Virtually seedless, medium-large, somewhat oblong fruit of excellent quality and medium-late maturity. Since it ripens earlier than Valencia and does not fruit in clusters to the same degree, it is probably best considered a variety. The tree is moderately vigorous and upright-growing, leaf shape is large and almost grapefruit-like. Bears similar yields to Valencias of same size (not age). At first sight does not appear to carry a good crop but this is the result of the large fruit size. In South Africa the Midknight produces fruit of excellent size (mainly 70-85 mm), good round shape (sometimes very slight shoulder) and very smooth rind texture. Excellent internal quality with high juice percentages and TSS levels. Seedless as Delta but has slightly tougher rag; can also be difficult to peel. Matures at same time as most Valencias. 1930's

The skins of ripe full blood oranges can have as much anthocyanin as the skins of ripe dark grapes. 1975.

Description: Washington navel orange is also known as the Bahia for the Brazilian city from which it was imported into the United States in 1870. Although its origins are uncertain, it is believed to come from a bud sport found in a Selecta orange tree in the early 1800s. These exceptionally delicious, seedless, easy-peeling fruits quickly attracted the attention of citrus growers, and within a decade the "Washington" navel orange, as it came to be known, was the most widely planted.

Description: The tree is small to medium in size, spineless, and very productive. Fruit said to be similar to Doblefina, but larger, seedier, and often asymmetrical; persistent style; blood colouration of both rind and flesh much more intense and constant. External red pigmentation rarely equalled by other blood oranges and excelled by none, making the fruit most attractive. Reported to hold on tree and to store well or better. Intensity of external pigmentation and purplish-red colour of the chalazal spot place this variety in the deep blood group. Variety originated as a limb-sport of Doblefina which came to light in Spain about 1950.

Description: Small fruit somewhat resembling Yuzu. Fruit is reddish-orange, leaves similar to Yuzu, resistance to citrus canker is good & gummosis resistance is good. Highly resistant to citrus root borer. Growth is slow, may have dwarfing characteristics. Trees are long-lived. Sudachi is an acid citrus; it bears small fruit (20-25 g) and is traditionally grown in Tokushima Prefecture (Japan). The fruit are harvested only at the green stage and are served in cut halves as a garnish. Sudachi trees tend to have a spreading habit of moderate vigour, but can be considered a small- to medium-sized tree, as 26-year-old trees on C-35 cit-range root-stocks are only approximately 8 feet tall. Thorns up to 5 mm in length are present in each leaf axil. Leaves are elliptical in shape, with a small-winged petiole. The tree canopy has dense branching. 1961

Very unique flavour; you could love it or hate it. About 2/3 or this plus 1/3 Tarocco blood orange juice makes a fantastically flavoured juice drink. Cocktail is actually a hybrid of Siamese Sweet pummelo and Frua mandarin. The cross was made at Riverside, possibly in the 1950s.

Description: Late-maturing diploid mandarin hybrid that combines good fruit size, excellent productivity, outstanding storage characteristics both on and off the tree, extremely rich and sweet fruit flavour and the absence of seeds even in mixed plantings. Gold Nugget fruit are slightly flattened in shape, with little or no neck. The average fruit size is medium-large for a mandarin, with mean weight per fruit of 130 grams (4.6 oz). The rind texture is variable, depending on tree age, crop, but especially on the amount of pruning the tree has received. Alternate bearing is also reduced in regularly pruned trees. Fruit rinds from non-pruned trees with heavy crops can be somewhat coarse and bumpy although fairly easy to peel when fruit are mature. Rind oil is evident when peeling fresh fruit. Fruit splitting on the stylar end of the fruit can occur. The fruit is juicy, averaging 49% juice content. Flesh is deep orange in colour with a moderately fine texture. The taste is extremely sweet when mature (brix 15.0% in March, 17.5% in May) with a very rich flavour, considered by professional taste panels to be one of the very best flavoured citrus in the world. 1975

Description: Has a bark condition resembling psoriasis. This condition is apparently characteristic of the New Zealand 'grapefruit', The earliest description of record, given in a New South Wales nursery catalogue of 1820, indicates that the original introduction might have been a Shaddock (pummelo); hence, the possibility exists that Poorman is of Australian origin. A seedy, orange-fleshed fruit that matures slightly earlier than grapefruit because of its lower acidity. The fruit and tree are very similar to grapefruit, but it is probably a pummelo hybrid or a natural tangelo. This is also suggested by the monoembryony of the seeds (they will not grow true to type). The fruit has some resemblance to the Attani of India and the Natsudaidai and Asahikun of Japan. Orange flesh, sweet-tart; seedy; coarse rind, prominent pores.

Description: The origin of the Tahiti or Persian lime is unknown, and its history is obscure. The name arises from the fact that this type of lime was introduced from Tahiti sometime during 1850 to 1880. As the Persian lime, it was introduced into Australia as early as 1824, possibly from Brazil. The origin of the name Persian is unknown, however, although it seems likely that this fruit came to the Mediterranean area via Persia as did the citron. Fruit medium-small (like small lemon), oval, faintly furrowed. Seeds are lacking. Rind thin; surface smooth, tightly adherent. Segments about 10; axis small and usually solid. Flesh colour pale greenish-yellow; tender, juicy; very acid and with true lime flavour. Somewhat everbearing, mainly in winter. Vigorous, broad-spreading, drooping, medium to medium-large, nearly thornless; foliage dense green. Flower buds and flowers medium in size and flowering occurs throughout year, mainly in spring. Purple coloration usually faint and evanescent in both flowers and shoots. Fully as cold-resistant as the true lemons.
