A cross between a tangerine and a kumquat, this "mini-orange" is usually used in marmalades and baked dishes... but more adventurous chefs have found many uses for it.
Grow this orange tree in containers or as a hedge. In colder climates, grow the Calomondin Tree in a container and move it indoors during winter months.
This citrus tree prefers bright sunlight, so be sure to put it in front of a sunny window. Leave it outside during warm months.
Harvest Fruit Year-round
The Calomondin Orange Tree delights its owners with a heavenly scent, and several flushes (harvests) of blossoms and fruit throughout the year.
The fruit of the Calomondin Orange Tree is about the size of a lime or a tangerine and has a thinner skin than most oranges. Fruit is yellow-orange to orange.
Pick the fruit when it is half-ripe and let it ripen off the vine. It is often better this way as it takes a long time (up to a year) for the fruit to turn fully orange on the tree. Also, the longer the fruit is left on the tree, it may become overripe and lose flavor.
This amazing tree can bloom all year long, but most fruiting takes place between June and November. Typically, blossoms and fruit form after the tree is two years old.
Healthy and Delicious, the Calomondin Has Many Uses
Calomondin Orange is often used in juices, for cooking, in preserves, and as a complement for tea, seafood, meats, and sauces. It is also delicious eaten in its natural state.
The fruit is a healthy treat for body and mind – it's rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and calcium. It only has 12 calories!
Calomondins are used in an array of home remedies for everything from a topical treatment for acne, to an expectorant and cough suppressant, for insect bites, to bleach freckles, as a body deodorant, and as a hair conditioner!
Easy Care and Cold Hardy
Place your Calomondin Orange Tree in a container and water it as needed. Allow the top one-inch of soil to dry out completely between watering times. Feed sparingly, about every five weeks, with a citrus fertilizer during winter months.
Place it in full sun during warm months and only bring it inside when the temperatures dip below 50 degrees F.
