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
