Identification of Citrus Thorn Bush
My neighbor has a Citrus Thorn Bush that we do not know the name. The bush has 2" - 3" thorns with golfball size fruit of a deep yellow color. The outside skin/rind is pitted like an orange/lemon with a bit of a fuzzy feel. The mature fruit is toward the center of the bush and the new green ones are at the very ends. Inside, the fruit has very little pulp with mostly 3/8" oval size seeds. The oil from the rind cannot be washed off with soap, mineral spirits does best. The bush is approximately 7' tall. Anyone know the name? and what possible uses for this plant? Thanks.
