|Australian Round Lime|
Round lime (Citrus australis), also known as Australian lime or Australian round lime, is a large shrub or small tree producing an edible fruit. It grows in forest margins in the Beenleigh area and northwards, in Queensland, Australia.
Citrus australis is a tree up to 20 m tall. Fruits are spherical or slightly pear-shaped, 25–50 mm across, with a thick green or yellow skin and pale green pulp. The 1889 book 'The Useful Native Plants of Australia records that "The fruit, which is an inch and a-half in diameter and almost globular, yields an agreeable beverage from its acid juice."
