mosambi belongs to the Rutaceae family. The taste of mosambi is slightly tart to extremely sweet when ripe. The branches are smooth, branch irregularly and bear numerous thorns. It bears fragrant white flowers and the unripe green fruit turns to yellow on ripening.
The fruits ripen only on the tree and once they are picked they do not ripen further. Hence only ripe fruits should be bought.
