Miniature Orange with Year Round Blooms
The Calamondin is known as the "miniature orange". The flesh is orange, juicy and acid, with a fine lime-orange flavor. Because of this, it is often grouped with the limes. It is grown mainly as an outstanding ornamental, which is often trained as a bonsai. It will bloom year-round; filling the air with the aroma of citrus blossoms. Calamondin has flowers and fruits that often appear at the same time!
The tree has upright branches with very few thorns and can grow up to 10 feet high. Calamondin provides a prolific fruit production, has a zesty acid juice, displays a handsome compact habit, and is outstanding in containers. Calamondin halves or quarters may be served with iced tea, seafood and meats, to be squeezed for the acid juice. The fruit can also be used for making acid beverages.
