The fruit is very small and has a thick, bumpy rind which when crushed emits an intense citrus fragrance.
Prefers a full sun position in well drained soil; if growing in pots ensure a good quality potting mix is used. Water and fertilise regularly. Trees may have some thorns, particularly when young.
