Mr Vijay,

Does this have any name in English other than 'loose jacket'? And what's the botanical name?

Dear Samuel
Name Citrus reticulata is indicated with photographs

Unfortunately the name orange is differently applied. We call orange in India to C. reticulata, people here in USA call it as Mandarin and apply the name orange to. C. sinensis (our Malta, Mausami, etc). I will upload my photographs of Citrus once I reach India on 7th Jan.
