Most probably, Citrus kinokuni 'Mukakukishu'

Kinokuni is the kishû mikan of Japan. The fruit is small, somewhat oblate, depressed at both ends, orange-coloured, and glossy. The thin, comparatively tight rind is easily peelable and fragrantly aromatic. The flesh is firm, meaty, and pleasantly sweet in flavour. Seeds are few. Fruit maturity occurs in early midseason. The kinokuni is said to be a very old species of Chinese origin and one of the earliest introduced into Japan, where it is still popular because of its pleasant flavour and rich fragrances. At least four varieties are known, the largest of which is Hirakishu. 'Mukakukishu' is a completely seedless variety also known as Seedless Kishu.
