(Sanbokan )

The origin of Citrus is uncertain. It is believed that most species are from northeastern India eastward through the Malay Archipelago and south to Australia. There are between 20 and 25 species and hundreds of hybrids, varieties and cultivars. Several hybrids are naturally occurring. Citrus exists in sub-tropical areas with the exception of the pumelo which is more tropical in nature.

All members of this genus are large shrubs or trees. They are commonly evergreen (rarely deciduous)...
