Description

New Product!

Also called Philippine lime, calamansi

Blooms year round! A cross between a mandarin orange and a kumquat, this productive tree yields small fruit, similar to traditional oranges but with a zestier flavor. Like the kumquat, the fruit’s peel is sweet/tart while the flesh is tangy – often eaten whole, or used in chutney, marmalade, and as a substitute for limes. Juice is favored in beverages and desserts. Tree has ornamental appeal and fragrant flowers. May bloom again while fruit still remains on the tree, allowing for different harvest intervals. Heat-tolerant. Fruit takes up to 12 months to ripen. Harvest in spring through mid-summer. Self-pollinating.

  • Mature size can be kept smaller by pruning.
  • If you live in a cooler climate, plant these warm-weather plants in containers so that you can move them indoors before freezing temperatures arrive.

This is the best tasting lime-ade I ever had, it has it's own unique wonderful smell and taste. It's also used in Asian noodle dishes, spicy seafood, and chili sauce. Very versatile fruit.
