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.
