Tart, Miniature Orange Popular in Thai Cooking
The Variegated Calamondin produces fragrant blooms that are followed by tart, petite, orange fruit, like its Calamondin cousin. These 1" miniature orange-like fruits have a strong tart flavor that is often used in Thai cooking; used in the place of lemon.
This immature fruit is strikingly green and yellow striped. Its variegated, clean handsome foliage, with a compact habit, makes it suitable for indoors or patio containers.
It prefers sun to part shade or high light indoors. The Variegated Calamondin makes a nice landscape addition as a hedge or screen. The flowers set in spring time, and this tree reaches to 10 to 15 feet tall, 6 to 8 feet wide. It can be pruned to a desired shape.
