Citrus Macroptera, commonly called as Melanesian papeda, wild orange, Cabuyao or Satkara is a semi-wild species of citrus native to Malesia and Melanesia. Its fruit is about 6–7 cm in diameter, has a fairly smooth, moderately thick rind, and is yellow when ripe. The pulp of the fruit is greenish yellow and dry (does not produce much juice). The juice is very sour, and somewhat bitter. The dried peel of the Citrus Macroptera is eaten as a vegetable, while the pulp is usually discarded because of its bitter-sour taste. It has a unique taste and aroma. The thick dried peel is cut into small pieces and cooked, in beef, mutton, and fish curries, as well as in stews. The fruit as well as the peel has been often used for treating stomach ailments as well as digestive enzymes. It is also said to have antiseptic properties used in treating sore throats from cough, flu and cold and is useful in lowering high fevers.
