Citrus garrawayi, the Mount White lime, is a tree native to the Cape York region of northern Queensland in Australia. It is an understory tree in tropical rainforests.[2]

Citrus garrawayi is a shrub or small tree up to 15 m, with broad lanceolate leaves. Fruits are elongated, yellowish-green with green pulp. The fruits are edible but the species is rare and grows in an isolated location, so there has to date been no commercial use of the species.[3]
