We live in the NE corner of GA – Rabun County. This plant which is about 10 -12 feet tall is filled with what appears to be citrus fruit of some kind. Seems impossible in the mountains. We picked up a fallen fruit and cut it open. It is filled with seeds.

    it looks like a calamondin, if fruits are 25 to 50cent size. If so, makes a wonderful easy to make jam.

    Yep…Walter’s right…trifoliate orange.

    Fun to grow. These things have the most wicked thorns you’ll ever see. Great conversation piece.
