Procimequat is a triploid citrus hybrid or transgeneric hybrid, in which the Limequat that itself is a cross between lime and a round kumquat, was backcrossed with a kumquat-like fruit, named Fortunella hindsii.[1]

The tiny fruits are orange in color, and about the size of a marble.[2] Like some kumquats, it is eaten entirely, including the peel. It tastes like a combination of lemon, orange and celery.[3]

Despite being triploid, the Procimequat does produce seeds, which are nucellar.[1] That means that it comes true from seeds, no matter on the pollen source.
