Citrus myrtifolia

A magnificent Chinotto heavily cropping it's citrus fruit

People may be familiar with the soft drink named for this citrus tree - 'Chinotto'. It is well suited to this, as the taste of the flesh is bitter but the sweet citrus flavours develop with cooking. The rind is candied and added to Panettone, an Italian speciality, popular at Christmas celebrations. It is a thornless, attractive small tree with orange like fruits, well suited to container growing or small gardens.
Other Names: Myrtle-leaved orange tree
