I had a procimquat at one time, but I never seen a use for it and got rid of it.  Today I don't remember where I purchased it.

Millet, are you saying they are inedible?

I guess you could eat them, as in they would not kill you.  There is no juice, nor pulp.  The size of the fruit is about 1/2 to 3/4 the size of a child's  marble, or smaller.  I never actually ate one, but I imagine procimequat fruit would taste like eating a semi dry citrus peal.  A procimequat will normally bloom in about one year after planting seed.  Only value would be ornamental.

Ned used to sell them. Millet is correct, the fruit is about the size of a large pea & mostly seed.

The procemquat is the only citrus in witch the seed is actually larger than the fruit that contains it.  LOL

I have one.  Just bloomed a few weeks ago. Hit me up in the fall.
