This small tree in the citrus family grows to 20 feet. Two specimens were planted spring 2006 in the Citrus Court Island in the History Corner of the Quad and near the verge of the Mausoleum lawn (south side), adjacent to the grouping of Acer griseum. The former survived until 2008. The latter was removed around 2020.
