H. Chapot: Small ovoid fruit, with few segments except the shape is very like the Khatta-Karna variety. Probably a mandarin-lime hybrid. Acid, pink flesh, Introduced from Iran.
EMN, 11/9/1987- Immature fruit at this time looks like a lemon or lemon/lime hybrid, will check it again later.
EMN, 2/16/88- Resembles a smallish lemon with somewhat smoother rind than ordinary lemon, and of a darker yellow color (almost an orange/ yellow). Shaped like a lemon but most fruits less elongate than common lemons. Seedy, pulp medium yellow, very sour lemon flavor.
