Poncirus trifoliata


Not native to Florida


A small thorny deciduous tree that is closely related to the Citrus genus. While not native to the United States, it can be found throughout the southeastern coastal states west into Texas and Oklahoma, in Arkansas, Tennessee and West Virginia, the mid-Atlantic states as far as Delaware and Pennsylvania.
The fruit is small, very acid and bitter, but the hardiness of this plant lends itself to use as a rootstock for citrus trees.

Poncirus trifoliata is a member of the Rutaceae - Rue family.
