I'm afraid not. We glean the internet for interesting tidbits of trivia that may interest gardeners, but sometimes the information is not as complete as we'd like.

Thanks for your interest though!

I have a feeling it was probably a Ponderosa lemon but one never knows.

My hunch would be Etrog Citron (Citrus medica var. Etrog). They can reach enormous sizes.
