MS Oct, 2019/14 Citrus sp. (macroptera?) for ID : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (4)

Location : Near Mawmrang, Mizoram

Altitude : ca 1,500 m.
Date : 06-11-2019
Habit : Shrub or small tree

Habitat : Wild


Shape of the fruit is confusing me although leaves and other aspects appears similar to Citrus macroptera as per
But some images how similar shape as per
Wikipedia states as below:
The species is sometimes divided into four varieties, or alternatively into three separate species, as follows:[5]
  • C. macroptera var. macroptera
  • C. macroptera var. annamensis Tanaka -> C. combara Raf.
  • C. macroptera var. combara (Raf.) Tanaka -> C. combara Raf.
  • C. macroptera var. kerrii Swingle -> C. kerrii (Swingle) Tanaka
Pl. check.
On further checking, it is given as a syn. of Citrus hystrix DC. by Catalogue of Life.

Images on Google seems to match with it.

…………..

Thank you for persisting with the Citrus. I am thanking you more so because your queries made me look at the narthangai plant again (A lesson in observation!) and I noticed that it  had thorns.Something that the photo posted by … does not show. Again i do not know if  the plant he has photographed is/could be a hybrid variety. These days several varieties of plants  that originally had thorns are produced minus these natural protectors!
I am attaching with this mail a photo of the narthangai plant growing in my garden. Too early for it to fruit, so only leaves and branches are seen  in the photo.This much i can vouch for – it is narthangai plant. It was grown from the seeds of the fruit.
Which species of Citrus it is  I do not know.
I do hope that this  helps


After seeing the photograph shot by … I had a second look at Citrus species and am inclined to identify it with C. hystrix DC. This species has winged petiole more than half as long as leaf blade and crenulate leaves, fruit 5-7 cm.


Need a kaffir lime plant: Kindly help me find a nursery that stocks this plant. Anywhere in India will do.


Please try Pathare Nursery, near Shivaji Chowk, Kalyan. They keep good varieties of grafted plants especially lemon.
