Botanical Name: Citrus medica
The fragrant fruits of the citron are highly variable in shape and texture. They can be oblong, oval, rough or smooth. The candied peel is used in the food industry and is a common ingredient in fruit cakes, plum pudding, sweet rolls and candies. If fully ripen on the tree the fruits are very aromatic and yellow, they can be placed in a bowl to scent a room. Sensitive to frost, the foliage and fruit can also be damaged by intense heat and drought.
