Citrus tree with tasty sweet yellow fruits with very thin skin, similar in appearance to kumquats ... not sure how similar in taste (not tried). Grown in California on a small commercial scale. Relatively easy to grow, hardly shrubby tree resistant to withertip. Fruits all year round, but mostly in fall and early winter.
