A vigorous tree with spreading foliage growth and short, sturdy thorns.
The leaves are pale green, medium-large and elliptic: 12-14cm long and 6-8cm wide, similar to the pomelo. The fruit is quite large, oblong and obovoid with a slightly prominent nipple surrounded by a circular furrow. The rind is yellowish-green, rough and knobbly, quite thin and adherent to the flesh. The flesh itself is greenish-yellow with little juice, sour and bitter, consisting of 5 segments with a large, compact central column, and numerous small, polyembryonic seeds. According to W.T. Swingle, the alemow is a hybrid of C.celebica or other papeda species, and a variety of the Eucitrus subspecies, probably the pomelo (C. grandis). It is grown on the island of Cebu (Philippines) where it is thought to be indigenous. It is considered a promising rootstock for lemons in California, especially in areas with a high content of soluble salts and boron.
