Product Description

One of the Cold Hardiest Citrus Trees

Why Calamondin Orange Trees?

There’s nothing like the Calamondin Orange Tree: With fruit that’s a cross between a tangerine and a kumquat, this "mini-orange,” as it’s dubbed, is wonderfully delicious.

Even better? It can be grown in a container or as a hedge. In colder climates, grow the Calamondin Orange Tree in a container and move it indoors during winter months, or cover your outdoor bushes for chilly weather.

Plus, the Calamondin delights with a heavenly scent and several flushes (harvests) of blossoms and fruit throughout the year. The yellow-orange fruit of the Calamondin Orange Tree is about the size of a lime or a tangerine and has a thinner skin than most oranges, making it delectably delicate.

Pollination Info

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.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, around 6 to 8 hours. And ensure the area has well-drained soil.

To plant in a container, choose a pot slightly larger than the shipped container, with 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.

Fill your pot halfway with soil. Remove the tree from its original pot and gently place it in the potting soil. Fill in around the tree with the remainder of the potting soil but leave about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.

Immediately after planting, give your tree a deep watering until water flows from the holes in the bottom of the pot. Finally, place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight.

2. Watering: After watering once or twice weekly, allow the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again. 

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

3. Fertilizing: Feed your Calamondin during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer, such as the one included with our Citrus Care Kit, once every six weeks. During the fall and winter, fertilize once every 2 to 3 months. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.

4. Pruning: Pruning can be done at any time of the year. 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. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree, and remove suckers as they form/grow from the base.

5. Pollination: Our tree is self-fertile but you can pollinate your indoor trees by hand using a small, dry, fine-tipped paintbrush. Take your brush and stick it into the center of the bloom, swirling around to collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated, and repeat the process once daily. 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 in its place.
