Calamondin info, aka Miniature Orange Tree

A Calamondin is a cross between a kumquat and orange or kumquat and mandarin. It makes a very nice houseplant. The plant height can be controlled by the pot size and pruning. It will grow larger in the ground. Cold resistant 25 degrees.

It is quite showy and fragrant  when the fruit and blossoms kick in. Blooms and produces fruit all year long. The fruit is orange/red about golf ball size. It taste like a lime with a hint of mandarin. The rind is edible and sweet to taste. The fruit is juicy with high acidity. The fruit makes an excellent marmalade. It also stops insect bite itches. The  fruit  can be frozen whole and used  as ice cubes in summer drinks.

The plant is rather cylindrical and erect with dense branches and will grow in a variety of soils.

Caring for Indoor Citrus

Here is a brief guide for keeping your indoor citrus plants happy and healthy:

  • Location: Make sure your plants receive five to six hours of sunlight. Set your tree in a southern exposure, if possible, or supplement the light by using 40 watt fluorescent shop lights above the plants.
  • Fertilizer: Use an acidic fertilizer during the plant's active growing season in late winter, June and August. Use a high-nitrogen-low phosphorus food (20-10- 10) or one specifically for citrus every time you water.
  • Water: Your pot must have good drainage as you water every few days. Mist the leaves and give your tree a shower occasionally.
  • Humidity: Homes in winter have drier air, so try a tray of pebbles under the pot.
