Citrus myrtifolia, the myrtle-leaved orange tree, is a species of Citrus with foliage similar to that of the common myrtle. It is a compact tree with small leaves and no thorns which grows to a height of three metres and can be found in Malta, Libya , south France and Italy (primarily in Liguria tipically Savona and also in Tuscany, Sicily and Calabria). Citrus myrtifolia is sometimes planted in gardens. Due to its compactness, it can also be planted in a pot or other container.
