Just saw this tree on a walk this evening, and have never seen anything like it in Phoenix. Kind of reminds me of the ‘monkey balls’ I would see back in Ohio, just much smaller. Tree was kinda of bushy, similar to a citrus tree but also about 20 feet tall. Any ideas?

I do believe you are correct. It looks just like a citrus called kaffir lime.

Kaffir lime tree is an essential ingredient of Thai cooking. It's most aromatic and it smells heavenly, assuming it is Kaffir that is! Would love to have one.
