1. Citrus trifoliata was the old name for Poncirus trifoliata and is now back in use.
2. Citrus bigaradia was an old name for Citrus aurantium. Bigarade is still used in France for the Bitter Orange.
3. Citrus paradisi is the grapefruit but known as 'pomelo' in some languages - not the same as pummelo, C. grandis.
4. 'Bintangor' is a place in Malaysia where this hybrid was found. As far as I can ascertain the inclusion of the word 'tangor' is a complete co-incidence. Perhaps this hybrid should be called a Tangeradia!
5. Microcitrus and Eremocitrus species are now re-united into Citrus
The naming of Citrus Hybrids
The chart on this page lists the derivations of names sometimes used for some of the hybrids of citrus species.
These names have often been in use for a long time and may utilise taxonomy which is no longer current.
Where the old botanical terms clarify how the hybrid name arises, I have retained them here - with notes at the bottom of the table.
