A native of China, the Calomondin Orange Tree is the most cold-hardy of citrus tree varieties. It is hardy to 20 degrees F, but produces fruit best at temperatures above 55 degrees F.


Grow this orange tree in containers or as a hedge. In colder climates, grow the Calomondin Orange 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.

Enoy this Tree Year-round
Your tree will blossom and fill the yard, patio, or your home with a delightful citrus scent.

Reap the rewards of this minimal investment for many years to come with harvest after harvest of delightful, healthy fruit.

You'll have enough for your own family plus some to give away as gourmet gifts!

Discover the joys of citrus tree ownership, but hurry to place your order today! Our supply is limited and this tree is one of the most popular citrus trees available!

It's Easy to Plant your Calamondin Orange Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Calamondin Orange Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Calamondin Orange Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Calamondin Orange Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

This tree is much better pruned that the Meyer Lemon tree I bought but still one side has no growth so that it is lopsided. The must of grown in overcrowded conditions. That said the leaves were wilted - didn't work hard enough to get a good root ball dug out. The leaves where some yellow and some with some type of mildew or mold growing on them.Finally the trunk has a thin layer of algae or something very thin and bright green growing on it about a 1/2 foot up!I was planning on buying clementine, grapefruit, and navel oranges from this company now with this Calmodin Orange and the Meyer Lemon I'll probably try another company.I'll see what I can do to get these trees in shape.

I received my calamondin orange tree today, ordered 4 - 5 ft and it is actually slightly over 5 ft from floor to tip, there are many green oranges about the size of pea already on the tree, one is about a quail egg size, so cute! I live in north New Jersey and currently it is almost the coldest day of the year, but the tree is doing very well, I place it to the south exposure large picture window near my white color baby grand piano in my living room, looks great, I wish I could have a way to upload a picture here

This one of a couple plants that arrived on December 24. It already had one almost ripe orange on it and at least 20 mini oranges (about the size of a pea) with a lot of tiny white dots (future blooms). I do have it sitting over a saucer of water for some humidity in the house and it really appears to be happy. I now have a room of fragrant blooms, hopefully i've got the pollination right because there's no insects to do the job for me in the house. So far I'm quite happy.

I got my Calamondin Orange today, I ordered the 5 - 6 ft size, I figured it would be closer to 5 ft than 6 - a GIANT box appeared on my doorstep. Mine is over 6 ft tall, is lush, has lots of oranges on it. The shipping was fast - am very pleased

is the juice sour or sweet from this fruit? how often will this tree produce fruit during the year? what month can I expect fruit? and how long for them to ripen enough to pick and allow to fully ripen after being picked?
NoorSani on Jul 30, 2014
Best Answer: The juice from this orange is sour and isn't used for much, despite the description they give on this site. Fruiting in the first year depends on the size and age of the tree when you get it, but in my experience, the shock of transportation and replanting will probably eliminate any fruit production the first year. Once it does flower and set fruit, it will probably be at least 9 months before it's ripe.

We are wondering if this will arrive with fruit on it - ie. will it look like the photo?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2014
Best Answer: It's possible for your tree to arrive with fruit, however during transit once your tree is taken from direct sunlight and placed in a box it may shed it's leaves and fruit to protect itself. This is normal, the tree just wants to store its energy in its trunk. Sometimes the fruit makes it to people, sometimes it falls off in the box.

My Calamondin Orange Tree blossomed while in the house this past winter. Also had some very small fruit by March. The fruit is smaller than a lime and bitter. Should I leave the fruit on or pick it so more fruit can grow?There are more blossoms on the tree now
Kathy Y on Jun 6, 2014
Best Answer: Keep the fruit on. Let it grow on the tree until it turns a little greenish yellow. It will take awhile so be patient. When it's time to pick, it should be really juicy when you open it and sour. This is used as a condiment to flavor your savory foods. A lot of people also turn it into juice by squeezing the juice and adding sugar and water. The other blossoms will continue to grow while the others ripen so just let it stay there. Good luck. Hope you enjoy.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
