Shaddock

Also called �Pummelo� (Citrus grandis), citrus tree of the family Rutaceae, reaching 6 - 13 m (20 - 43 feet) in height. Shaddock is allied to the orange and the lemon and is presumably native to Malaysia and Polynesia. The name shaddock is said to have derived from that of a captain who introduced the tree to the West Indies. The leaves are like those of the orange but have broadly winged petioles
