They take 11 months to ripen on the tree and grow to the size of a grapefruit or pummelo. The fibrous yellow pulp is very aromatic described as being sweet, aromatic and pleasant, although tangy and slightly astringent in some varieties, smelling of roses and tasting like marmalade, or part citrus, part tamarind. Fruits are eaten fresh or dried. This tree is considered sacred by Hindus and the fruits are used as food and in tradition medicine throughout its natural range in Asia. In India it has a reputation of being able to grow where other trees cannot. It is happy in a wide range of soil conditions, will tolerate periods of waterlogging and has an unusually wide tolerance to temperature, from -7C to 48C. It does require a pronounced dry season to set fruit.
