Sweet rewards for sharp tasting fruit

Sweet rewards for sharp tasting fruit

Rural Research ( 172): 15-16

The potential of native Australian citrus species (Eremocitrus glauca (desert lime) and Microcitrus spp.) as drought-resistant commercial fruit crops (for fresh fruits or processing) and, in the case of some of the hybrids with brightly coloured fruits, as ornamental plants, is discussed.
