I need your help for another citrus identification. Here are the links to some pictures:
I bought the fruits in a local Bangladesh food shop. And they were sold as Lebu. Lebu is however just the name for lemon in the local language (Bengali language). And it’s hard to find some more information for me so far. The fruit has a very intensiv smell. Reminds me personally about a citrus hystrix from the smell. A friend of mine from India (west Bengal) told me that it’s a Gondhoraj Lebu. Which means translated from Bengali: aroma king lemon. And it’s used to flavor dishes as well as rice. She however is not an plant expert. Under the name Gondhoraj Lebu, I find pictures of similar fruits and fruits of a different shape. Does anyone know of the Gondhoraj Lebu exist in different varieties? Or has someone heard the name Jara lebu befor? This is also a name which appeared on my searches. I could say the fruit looks more like a typ of citrus x lemon, and not like a citrus medica typ. Might be of course also a hybrid. The seeds germinates easily and are very similar in appearance to citrus x lemon seedlings. More I can not distinguish yet. Does anyone know more about this plant? Or even has it in cultivation? Again, it’s a very aromatic fruit and it’s a pitty that the fruit is not more common yet. Thank you for you help.
On some websites it says that Sashni Lebu is a papeda. But so far, the young leaves do not look like a papeda. Is it then right that most (or even all?) Lebu seams to be citrus x lemon varieties? There seams to be lots of different Lebu in different areas of India.
Here an update for you all: I got some new Lebu from the Bangladesh food store. They look similar to the already shown pictures from me. And all of them have a slightly different shape, the smell is the same. Very green-ish, aromatic, citrus-like.
I found now the following publication about some lebu (Clombo lemen as they call it):
