One of the most cold-hardy citrus trees

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.

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!

 





Calamondin (Tangerine) Orange Tree Pollination

Calamondin (Tangerine) Orange Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Calamondin (Tangerine) Orange Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Beautiful tree, produced many fruits this year
I ordered a 4-5 ft calamondin tree back to February this year, I live in New Jersey, planted in a big pot, moved the tree outdoor since April and the tree grew out many new branches and leaves, produced more than 30 oranges this year, the fruits now turned to orange red, so beautiful, I love it and feel happy every morning when I see them. I wish I can upload a picture to show this beautiful tree.

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 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

My family is from the Philippines where this fruit is a common table drink item. It's unique, tart flavor is used as a condiment to cut through the often strong, salty and garlicky flavors of the local cusiine. It also makes a very refreshing drink, but a lot of sugar or simple syrup is required along with a large quanitity of water. Also, ths same drinik is often served hot, like tea, to cure congestion. it quite addictive once you get used to it.

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.

My clamondin tree has been growing well and producing many little oranges. I got it in April of 2015 and.am waiting
to pick my first one. It was over 5" tall when it arrived and already had tiny oranges on. They are at least 1 inch in
diameter or more so I'm expecting they should ripen soon.
I would recommend the calamondin orange tree to anyone
who enjoys watching trees grow and would take the time
to try a calamondin orange recipe from the internet

Nice tree. Growing well so far.
Delivery was quick and the box was huge! Tree arrived in great shape. Transplanted into a nice pot with perfect citrus soil and fertilizer and growth has been slow and steady. I recommend spending a little more and getting these larger sized trees. They fruit quicker and transplant better.

Nice organized company, but overpriced for what I received
I was excited to order a calamondin because I was told that I couldn't buy them locally around me (Charleston, SC). I wanted one after seeing my aunt's 6 foot tree down in Alabama, so I figured my only option was to order one. This company seems very well organized and prompt - the tree came very quickly and well-packaged. I ordered the 1-2 ft tree because of the cost of anything larger; mine ended up costing $70 after shipping. What came was essentially a single branch grafted onto a small stem, rather than more of a bush as I sort of expected.

My disappointment came when I made a trip to Lowes later for other things and to my surprise, there was a beautiful, very full, and fruiting 3 foot calamondin tree for only $30. Just my luck. Anyway, if buying local is not an option -- make SURE it is not -- this is a decent way to go.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Calamondin (Tangerine) Orange Tree


Calamondin (Tangerine) Orange Tree Planting Diretions

The Calamondin orange tree (Citrus mitis) is a small, bushy evergreen reaching a mature height of 5-8 feet and width of 5 feet. It requires plenty of sunshine and heat and is recommended for growing outdoors in zones 8-11. It’s also the perfect size for growing in a container if you’re in a cooler zone but should be brought indoors during the winter months. The leaves on the calamondin orange tree are oval, glossy and green and are accompanied by white, star-shaped flowers during the spring. The leaves and flowers have a citrusy aroma that will add a pleasant smell to your home or garden. The fruits begin as small, deep green oranges and slowly ripen to bright orange. They’re typically ready for harvesting between August and October and are best when picked half-ripen and allowed to ripen the rest of the way off the vine. The fruits are a cross between a tangerine and a kumquat and have a tart and acidic taste often used in juices and marmalade.

Seasonal Information: Calamondin trees will do best in warmer climates as it is classified as a tropical plant. Zones 8 to 11 are ideal for outdoor planting. However, if you do experience cold winters, plant your calamondin tree in a container and bring it inside for the fall and winter seasons. We recommend planting in Spring through Fall for outdoors since they are sensitive to colder temperatures.

Selecting a location: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, 6-8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade, but thrive in full sun. You’ll want to ensure trees are spaced 8-10 feet apart if planting more than one. These trees also do better in areas with high humidity so you may also need to create humidity for your tree by misting the leaves daily with water. Potted plants do enjoy a daily misting for humidity but placing a tray with rocks filled with water under the plant will feed humidity to the tree as the water evaporates.

Planting Directions (in Ground): If you are located in zones 8-11 and your winter temperatures stay consistently warm, your calamondin will do well being planting outside in the ground. Be sure the area has well draining soil.

1) Dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system.
2) Place the tree in the hole and back fill it with your sandy, well-drained, acidic soil. If you have clay soil, try amending it with sand, stone, perlite or fine potting soil.
3) Tamp the soil down as you backfill the hole to cut back on any pockets from forming.
4) After planting, be sure to give your calamondin tree a deep watering for about 5 minutes. Mulching around the tree will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the colder winter months as well.

Planting Instructions (potted): If your winter temperatures are consistently below 40 degrees, plant your tree in a container that can easily be brought outside in the summer months and inside in the winter. A planter with built-in casters is a good choice so it can easily be moved. Choose a pot slightly larger than what it was shipped in that has plenty of holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Be sure to plant in well-draining potting soil preferably recommended for acid loving citrus plants.

1) Fill your pot halfway with soil. Remove the tree from its original pot and gently place it in the potting soil.
2) Fill in around the tree with the remainder of the potting soil but be sure not to cover the grafted area of the tree. Leave about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.
3) Lightly pack down the soil. Immediately after planting, give your tree a deep watering until it flows from the holes in the bottom of the pot.
4) Place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight. Supplement with a grow light if it will not receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day. You may also need to create humidity for your tree by placing the pot on a saucer of pebbles or misting the leaves daily with water.

Pollination assistance: You can pollinate your indoor trees by hand since most people do not keep a healthy bee population within their home. Simply take a small, dry, fine tipped paint brush and stick it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated. Do this once daily and don’t wash the paintbrush until after the blooms have been pollinated. The bloom will fall off naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

Watering: Calamondins do not like wet feet. Be sure to give your tree a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2-3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Yellowing and droopy leaves is a common sign of over watering while brown, dry leaves are a sign of under watering. Mulching can help retain the soil moisture and also combat competing grasses/weeds.

For potted calamondins, stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels more dry at that depth. When ready to water, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Fertilization: Feed your calamondin tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer once every six weeks. Espoma Citrus Tone is highly recommended but any organic fertilizer specifically for citrus should suffice. This will help keep your tree on a healthy growth cycle but also replenish the nutrients in the soil. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2-3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit and has got a few years on it, you can skip the cold season fertilization. The same fertilizing regimen should be followed for potted calamondin trees as well. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.

Pruning: Pruning can be done at any time of the year for in ground planted calamondins except in the winter. Make 45-degree angle cuts to remove dead or crossing limbs and also to thin out the tree to allow more light to flow between the branches. “Leggy” looking branches may indicate that there is not enough light getting to the tree’s interior. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree. Remove suckers as they form/grow from the base as they will steal away nutrients from the primary trunk of the tree. Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted calamondin.

These trees are very hard to find in the states. The juice is essential for a lot of Filipino recipes my wife makes. Without it the food just does not taste the same. While Calamandin, calamansi, Kalamansi juice depending on your dialect can be purchased just like all things it does not compare to the fresh variety. Fresh calamandin juice mixed with soy sauce and garlic makes a rib marinade with a taste all its own.

Jojel H on Nov 24, 2014

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.
Are these clementine trees self pollinating?
Kevin F on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mandarins, including clementines, are among the few flowering plants that don't need to be pollinated to produce fruit, but they produce a smaller crop if they aren't pollinated. You can pollinate them yourself by taking a small paintbrush and lightly brushing the inside of the flower. This is what I do with my clementine that I keep indoors, and it works great. Hope this answered your question.
Are the fruit seedless?
Macrow Birde on Dec 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are seedless.
What is the main difference between the Calamondin Orange tree and the Owari Satsuma Tree?
Doris M. M on Nov 1, 2016
