The citrus in 2" pots I have bought from Logee's have been severely root bound. I had to remove all soil from the root balls and cut away large circling or "J" shaped roots. I had to do that to two Turunji's I bought from them and both now have yellow leaves, which I believe is due to root problems.

This is common from logees. Every plant I ordered was like this. Super tiny pot and root bound for high dollar prices.

I finally got around to filming a video of the fruit. Nice mild lemony citrus flavor with a 1or 2 out of 10 sweetness. This is probably best for culinary uses. When I was eating it I didn't notice any bitter but later on I did taste it. It might be better to not eat the thin rind. 

This is the short version of my video but I'll have a longer version out later.

Thanks Gaylord.  Your video is the first one I have see of the fruit.  I have a tree that bloomed last year but did not set fruit.    Perhaps this year.

Your description eyeckr sounds pretty identical to a citron that I had eaten. Photos in this post here: https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=52087

I have a feeling that there's dozens of citron varieties that would taste basically identical and that Turunji is not special at all.

Wow JSea I didn't see your post prior to my review but it's interesting how our descriptions did line up!

This give the new meaning of 'never compare orange to apple.'

Skin it, remove the seeds, and slice them about 1/4 inch and sprinkle some salt or sugar.
