Calamondin aka Mini Orange Tree, 6"

Regular price $48.00

Perfect for your summer garden! Fragrant flowers and actual oranges! Yes, you can eat them, but they are more like a lime or lemon in taste so maybe best for your gin & tonics. This ornamental fruit tree needs direct sunlight for several hours a day in the summer, think of California and Florida as its natural environment. Turn the plant every week so that it grows evenly. Bring inside gradually in the fall so as not to shock it. Keep the soil moist but not wet. When kept in a container it will top out at 4' tall. Toxic to pets.

Citrus Trees Overview

Looking for a tree to bear indoor fruit? The Calamondin Orange Tree (Citrus mitis) is a favourite amongst indoor trees; it’s a perennial shrub that produces fruit that is a cross between a kumquat and a tangerine. Originating from China, they were brought over to North America’s shores in the 1900s. Calamondins are covered in oval, glossy green leaves and can also grow an abundance of fragrant white flowers at the tips of their branches, followed by small, tart, tangerine-like fruit. The fruit goes from deep green to bright orange and can be left on the tree for months at a time until you’re ready to cook with them (very acidic, tart and seedless – they’re a good substitute for lemons and a terrible substitute for lemon juice in your eye)

Pefect gift for my green thumb mom

Wanted something extra special for one of my mom's milestone birthdays. She has a natural green thumb & her plants are always thriving indoors and out on the balcony. We are a Filipino family, and so when I saw that Calamondin was "calamansi" I was super thrilled!! She loves her mini tree & I ordered it with a nice white pot. Thanks Chive studio for this special gift for my special mama!
