|Citron - Mediterranean Biome|
The information board at the base of the plant reads "Citron - Citrus medica. Unlike the other citrus which you peel to get at the juicy bits, this huge fruit is predominantly rind and pith or 'albedo'. This is widely used in the food industry as candied peel and the market is rising in the USA for the soluble fibre found within the albedo".
Throughout human history the Citron has had a different use, that
of a medicinal plant. It was used to combat seasickness, pulmonary troubles,
intestinal ailments and other disorders.
