CITRON

Citrus Citron - Modified or cropped -By Assianir CC BY-SA 3.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Citrus medica
Description

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.

Growing well,

Harvested first fruit (only 2 have set) weighed in just shy of 1 kg!

Regular fruiter gets some damage to the skin from unknown pest which is a shame because I want to make lemon preserved skins from it, have tried covering the fruit with bags - will see if it works.
