Help me to choose a new citrus tree for my front yard

I have one spot for a tree at my front yard with a water supply and I’d like to use it :)

I have to be very responsible since it is located fairly close to my neighbors and the tree will be seen by everyone and I’d like to keep my street looking great.

I hope to find a citrus tree that I can keep 10” high and about 6” wide with a long (about 4”) trunk.

What citrus trees can be good for this task?

I know that any tree can be kept at any height and width with pruning but still, some trees have narrower upright character (I need this!) and some have spreading canopy or look more like bushes.

I already have Moro, 2 Meyer Lemons, NZL, Meiwa, Fukushu, and Clementine, so I hope it will be something new for me. I am open to any citrus idea, the fit is more important in this case :)

Thank you!
