mystery lime-like citrus fruit in Houston - help identify
I just moved to Houston and discovered 2 30-ft trees and a third smaller one, two of which are full of these green fruits that look deceptively like Persian limes. Although the cut fruit smells like a very mild lime, it tastes sweet (almost sugary) and floral, with a mild bitter aftertaste. The leaves look nearly identical to Citrus sphaerocarpa (Kabosu papeda), with sharp tiny teeth around the edges.
Over-ripe fruit on the ground are yellow.
I'd like to order my own plant if I can figure out what it is.
