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.

Bushy Little Plant
This plant is doing very well. It is just about a year in my care and just gave me its first ripe orange (through I didn't get a chance to try it because my cat knocked it off the plant and chased it across the floor). There has been no new growth since I got it, but the leaves are very dark green and it's very bushy. All in all a good little plant! It's in a one gallon pot in front of my living room window. It is fertilized once monthly.

Calamandin orange
We have had this amazing shrub for over a year and already have made the best British style 'marmalade' ever. That was a few months after we got it, (November) and today (May) it is loaded once again with small fruit. Furthermore, it requires little special attention, although is likes being outside in the Fall and Spring here in Virginia. We feel blessed to be able to have a citrus fruit here. This is a must for citrus lovers.

It is struggling. Wintered inside. Now adjusting to outdoors but looking peaked.

It does over the winter
Did great over the summer, then died when I tried to overwinter it indoors. I think maybe it succumbed to root rot as I had it in a very large pot and had issues drying out.

Cute but VERY Tart
I bought this calamondin to replace my kumquat that met with an untimely end. It bears lots of fruit and is quite cute. But the oranges are basically inedible because they are so sour! but it definitely looks nice and arrived very healthy!
