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 full sun, near a sunny window or under a grow light indoors. The Variegated Calamondin makes a nice landscape addition as a hedge or screen. The flowers set in spring time, and this tree can then be pruned to a desired shape.

If you live in a colder climate, simply plant them in a container. Bring your tree indoors near a sunny window, and let the intoxicating citrus scent brighten your home during cold winter days.

  • Striped, orange-like fruit
  • Compact tree, Grow indoors & out
  • Fragrant blooms
  • Tart fruit popular in Thai cooking
