Sydney hybrid wild Rofaustrime Rofaustrim
Lemon-shaped Australian wild, Lime sauvage hybride de Sydney, Sydney Hybrid, Virgata
'Sydney hybrid' is a very vigorous, wide and high tree that grows well even in hostile climates and has purple young shoots. It is incredibly drought resistant and produces rather small (3-5cm), oval, lemon-like fruit. Its yellow-green rind is very thin and contains lots of essential oils. The pulp is somewhat aromatic, sour and incredibly juicy. Until it was confirmed, that this variety was indeed a cross, it had been considered an individual cultivar called M. virgata Swingle & Reece.
