The Citrus x floridana, a hybrid between the kumquat and  the key lime trees. A wonderfully fragrant tree that is a bit more tolerant to cold than most lemon trees. It will thrive in a conservatory, even in an unheated one. 

Very popular in Florida (US) where the fruit is used to make limequat pie. 

Repot the plant in early spring in a well draining citrus compost mix. Water deeply, almost every day, for the first several months to ensure good root development.
