Rutaceae Week: Citrus paradisi Maf. from California: Citrus paradisi Macfad., Bot. Misc. 1:304. 1830
 
Common name: Grapefruit
Fruit large like Citrus grandis, reaching 15 cm in diameter, rind much thinner and orange yellow in colour, leaves smaller and glabrous on veins and pulp vesicles more tightly packed.
Photographed from California
Another confuser for me. It appears like mosambi - not sure if they are sold in Indian markets.
PLease ignore the last photograph
..., The broadly winged petiole is distinctive for both C. grandis and C. paradisi
