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.
