Citrus fruits seen in a plant nursery in Muscat on 2nd Jan,15.
Bigger fruits, very sour.
For species id please.
How big is the fruit? Check probability of Citrus hystrix DC. – http://www.citrusvariety.ucr.edu/citrus/hystrix_2454.html
Roughly the same size as Mosambi fruits.
Orange from inside, not pale yellow as in your link.
Thank you …, in that case it might be a hybrid, the parents of which themselves are hybrids. Please try searching ugli fruits and browsing http://www.citrusvariety.ucr.edu/index.html for parentage line.
Thanks … I will try to get the size and cross section of the fruits when I revisit the place.
We should wait for … who must have some info on this, …, meanwhile the following links are useful-
This Citrus fruit tree looks like the Sour Pomelo or Amilbed (Citrus megaloxycarpa Lush.). The origin of this is still uncertain. Therefore, in the recent Citrus classifications, this entity has not been given a true species status. Please refer to GRIN Taxonomy database (http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/npgs/html/taxon.pl?10751) for further details.
Thanks a lot for the id.
Will go thro’ the link provided by you.
Thank you very much, I am happy that the ID has been resolved.

Not C.medica. Looks like sour pomelo, Citrus megaloxycarpa Lush. , which is a suspected hybrid, involving C.medica and C.maxima and any other? as putative parents.
Thank you … However, it could be introduced as not listed in Nepal.
