(Citrofortunella microcarpa)

Share This:


This unusual citrus tree is a cross between kumquats and mandarin oranges.  This gives the fruit a slightly sour taste, but the skins are sweet.  A ready to harvest calamondin has a firm feel and should snap easily off the tree’s branch.  When grown indoors, pot the tree in a large container filled with potting soil, organic compost, and vermiculite.  Water the tree as needed to keep the soil moist and provide direct sunlight for at least several hours daily.
