I think it's a citron, though I don't know which one.

This is definitely a citron! Its huge, sort of deformed-looking, has a very floral aroma and lots of pith inside. The scent is almost majical. It's caramelized rinds are a real delicacy!

I am in Jerusalem, Israel, and it is pretty mild and warm :)

Have you noticed, by the way, that in the name you use for citron, Ganapathy Naranga, is hidden the Spanish word for orange, "naranja"? Pretty cool, eh?

Its is definitely citron (they call it kdaaranja in Tamil if I'm not mistaken, Pauljoseph, may be you can correct me if I'm wrong)
...there's a similar looking fruit I've seen here in the grocery store, its called an 'uglifruit!, yet to buy & sample one since the specimens there were kinda wilted!

Ugli fruit is a Jamaican tangelo, a hybrid of grapefruit, orange and tangerine. Found it on Wikipedia. It's a trademarked name (www.ugli.com/), and was found growing wild in Jamaica. The ones I've had look like grapefruits inside and are quite sour.

I've had the same experience with uglifruit, susan g. Much more grapefruity. I have enjoyed every slice of this lovely, international thread.
