What is the name of this tree/bush?
Looks like a bitter orange. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/68783/ Scroll down in that link to see other pictures of this plant. Also see a previous post to Walter here http://www.walterreeves.com/gardening-q-and-a/trifoliate-orange/
looks like poncirus trifolata…or hardy orange is the common name. I’ve not checked my facts from google. I’ve used the little fuzzy fragrant yellow fruits in a bowl (& coming back to the room and the frangrance is wonderful). …but watch dem thorns!
Tri-foliate Orange. Do not plant this as it will take over.
This is a Trifoliate Orange (Poncirus trifoliata). It’s related to citrus, but can escape cultivation, particularly around old farms.
