It has citric acid, but is not a citrus fruit.

The only reason I did was because it’s citrus acid level. It’s so similar to oranges and grapefruits and such. And the juices are similar as well.

Together with mountain papaya. If you look at its entire family it also includes mustard, capers and cabbage.

No other fruits in its family.

"Within the order, by far the most important family economically is the family of grasses, which includes the starch staples barley, maize, millet, rice, and wheat as well as bamboos (mostly used structurally, like wood, but somewhat as vegetables), and a few "seasonings" like sugarcane and lemongrass. Many Bromeliaceae are used as ornamental plants (and one, the pineapple, is internationally grown in the tropics for fruit)."
