They sell the fruit of these at my grocery store sometimes.  Is this likely the same variety?  I heard the downside is that it is not nearly as productive, though most people canít use a treefull of lemons anyway

Here is another citrus cultivar that I think would be very interesting to hobbyists, and fortunately it is being release for sale to both industry and dooryard.  It has been named Lemorlime (UF research name C4-9-33).  Lemorlime is a hybrid fruit which is 1/3 lemon, 1/3 orange, and 1/3 lime.   Although lime is the dominant flavor, lemon and orange can be tasted.  It is said it make an exceptionally good pie.
