xCitroncirus forms large grapefruit-sized fruits that are yellow to light orange with thin skin and a flavour like a cross between a lemon and a grapefruit.
The citrumelo is an intergeneric cross between a 'Duncan' grapefruit (Citrus) and the trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata) whose proper Latin name is xCitroncirus. It forms large grapefruit-sized fruits that are yellow to light orange with thin skin and a flavour like a cross between a lemon and a grapefruit. Hardy in coastal BC to zone 7. All of our citrus are grafted onto C-35 citrange, trifoliate orange, or other semi-dwarfing rootstock which confer good hardiness and production while reducing overall tree size.
