Citrus halimii is a citrus tree and fruit, belonging to the papeda subgroup of citrus plants. It was first discovered and catalogued in 1973.[2]


Citrus halimii is quite rare and poorly studied. After its initial 1973 discovery and description, it has only been observed in a handful of locations scattered across Southeast Asia: Thailand and Malaysia (the locations of the first discoveries), along with isolated stands in Indonesia.[2]


Citrus halimii is a midsized evergreen tree, with a mature height of 20 to 25 feet; it is somewhat less thorny than other citrus. Like other members of the papeda sub-group, the halimii has relatively large leaves, with a long, winged petiole.[2]

The fruits of C. halimii are edible, but sour. They are round and small, measuring about 5–7 cm in diameter. The rather thick rind eventually ripens to yellow or orange-yellow; internally the rind is tightly bound to the flesh. The yellow-green segments are filled with a number of large seeds, and a small quantity of juice.[2]
