Citrus limonia Osbeck, Reise Ostindien 250. 1765 (Syn: (=) Citrus taitensis Risso; (=) Citrus volkameriana V. Ten. & Pasq.) as per GRIN;
 
 


Rangpur, Citrus × limonia, also known as lemandarin, is a hybrid between the mandarin orange and the lemon. It is a citrus fruit with a very acidic taste and an orange peel and flesh.

 
Common names for this fruit include rangpur, named after Rangpur, Bangladesh, a city known for this and other citrus fruits. This is where the word originated in the Bengali language. The rangpur is known as a Canton lemon in South China, a hime lemon in Japan, as Limão Cravo or Limão Galego in Brazil, and mandarin-lime in the United States.
 
Rangpurs are highly acidic and can be used as a substitute for commercial limes. However the name lime in connection with this fruit is often misleading, because there are very few similarities between the rangpur and other fruits called limes.
