Is there any kind of a tag or label telling you what type of jasmine that is, Bob? Those are very large leaves for your common or garden variety jasmine.

Do you recall what the flower looked like? Did you hand-pollinate it by any chance? Big Grin (messin' with Mother nature??)

I think what you have is some type of citrus tree maybe lime, not a jasmine plant. Citrus trees do have jasmine-like smelling white blooms, then later the fruits appear. I have a calamondin tree which bears smaller green fruits, and the tree smells so good when in bloom. Smiling

On the other hand, your plant seems to be vining, so it maybe a jasmine, have read this article and it talks about their jasmine that had fruits and in the article it was called Stephanotis floribunda.
