A Calamondin is a hybrid fruit - think half mandarin orange and half kumquat. They are edible with a sweet peel and a sour bite. They are especially great for baked goods, jams, and cocktails. Most notably, the calamondin’s year round blooming cycle offers a stunning transformation of dark green leaves, white flower petals, and bright orange fruit. Calamondins are also known for the fresh citrus aroma they give off when in bloom.

Depending on season, plants range from 18-22 inches tall and 6-8 inches wide. Plants are shipped in standard black one gallon growing pots, not in the white pot you see in the picture. Before we ship out we source the best product on the farm. Even though we can not guarantee blooms and/or fruit, we get first choice on the best for you.

Calamondin trees can be plant in containers or into the ground if you are in zone 8-10. If planting on containers, the best soil to use is well drained such as cactus soil. They don't like wet feet and can cause root rot. Sunlight is crucial to kaffir lime trees, especially because it is a tropical plant. In most areas of the United States, you want to maximize sunlight with full sun exposure. If you are planting indoors, make sure that it has full sun next to the window, but we would also recommend having a grow light.

Calamondin does best when it has at least six hours of sunlight a day. If the temperature is consistently above 90° especially for younger trees, there may be some wilting of the leaves. This wilting will reverse however and at this point, it would be advantageous to keep your tree by elementary and partial shade.

Calamnsi tree will need both macro and micronutrients, just like a human. The macronutrients that all plants need are Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. You have likely seen fertilizers and soil which state three numbers together, this is the N – P – K system which shows the concentration and relative amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium respectively. They need high nitrogen so use a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen.
