Citradia is your fruit pure poncirus or a poncirus hybrid?  Looks like straight poncirus.

Iím pretty sure itís just poncirus. Iím sure others have grown bigger specimens, but I was just impressed with this one since most of the fruit are smaller.

The texture looks like somewhere between poncirus and TaiTri.
But I cannot really tell which.

I have three of these poncirus trees and two producing flying dragon. They all produce the same fruit except the dragon fruits are generally a little smaller. It has the oil that sticks to teeth, but I think it makes good marmalade after processing, but itís the only poncirus fruit Iíve ever sampled; however, I kind of doubt itís any kind of hybrid. If itís one of the ďbetterĒ quality poncirus, Iíd have no way of knowing.
