[NAFEX] mystery citrus
list at ginda.us

My company cafeteria often has displays of food lying around that aren't
really there to be eaten, just to look at. This week they had an
ornamental basket of a citrus fruit i've never seen, and I wonder if the
smart people here can identify it.
It was about the size of a mandarine, or a little smaller, orange, and
roughly tear-drop shaped, or maybe a little pear shaped. At any rate, it
had a plump round and and a narrower pointy end, and was considerably
longer than it was round. Otherwise, the shape was regular and the skin
seemed smooth. I didn't try to buy one (although in retrospect, I wonder
if I could have) so I don't now how it tastes or how seedy it is.
