Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century). Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1815). In Flora Indica, Roxburgh reports that this species is "a native of Rungpoor, where the tree is indigeneous". He adds that "flowering time [is from] January till March" and also how "the fleshy part of the fruit which covers the seeds and their proper juicy envelope, or aril, is in large quantity, of a firm texture and of a very sharp, pleasant, acid taste. It is used by the natives in their curries, and for acidulating water"

Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century). Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1815). Roxburgh mentions the arrival of these plants to the gardens in Flora Indica'; From Amboyna plants were brought to the Botanic Garden at Calcutta, in 1798, where in seven years they began to blossom during the hot season, viz. April and May; but have not yet ripened their seed in Bengal

Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century). Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1815). In his Flora Indica, Roxburgh writes: Under the above definition I mean to comprehend the various varieties, if not species, of the sour lemons or limes found in India, and as the petioles are very generally winged I think it necessary to separate them from the lemons and citrons which have not that mark, or have it in a very trifling degree. Roxburgh then describes nine different varieties which he has studied in Bengal, ...the whole being cultivated under my own eye, in the Botanic garden [Calcutta], and are arranged according to the estimation in which they are held by both natives and Europeans. These varieties are: 1) Pati-Leboo, or Neboo; 2) Kaguji-Neboo; 3) Gora-Neboo; 4) China-gora-Neboo; 5) Camaral-Neboo; 6) Rungpore Lime; 7) Taba-Neboo; 8) Arabian Lime from Muscat; 9) Meetha Lemoo
