Gardeners' Notes:

Positive jrozier On Aug 31, 2003, jrozier from Charleston, SC wrote:

This is a 'hardy' citrus that is edible. The fruit is small (a little larger than a kumquat) and tart, but would make good marmalade. It has the loose peel and taste of a tangerine, but is more sour. The flowers are pretty and have the typical 'citrus blossom' fragrance.
