Hello,

I recently bought a foreclosed home and one of the mysteries left is what is this tree next to my spa? The fruit is huge - bigger than my hand. I need help identifying the fruit no one seems to know. I live in eastern phoenix thanks.

I put pics here:

Kaffir Lime
The leaves are used in Thai "tom Yam" soup.

thanks for the replies. I agree its probably kaffir lime, it has the distinctive 2 leaves. However the fruit is very big, and doesnt look exactly like a kaffir lime. My limes are about 6-7 inches, ive seen kaffir limes on ebay only 4 inches. I am in gilbert.

On a side note, can anyone recommend other unique fruit to grow? I want to add more fruit trees to my backyard but dont want the standard fruit like oranges because everyone has that. Im looking for something unique like my kaffir limes that are rare here but will grow in this climate.
