Calamondin

Calamondin (prohibited to TX,AZ, & FL) Calamondin is the easiest citrus to care for. Hardy to 10 to 15 F, it is the easiest to grow in a container, has broad oval green leaves, is almost thornless and has a shapely upright habit. Throughout most of the year it produces an abundance of round bright orange 1-1/2" fruit. The fruit is easy to peel and has few seeds. The orange colored pulp is juicy and sour. It can be used as a flavoring or as a juice like a lemon or a lime. When sweetened with sugar it makes a marmalade. While most citrus go dormant below 50 F, the Calamondin will thrive at lower temperatures and is therefore easier to grow successfully. Still, in the Northwest, bring the pot in for the winter. We ship 2-3 year old plants that are well formed. You may order at any time. We ship from September through June.
