Tell Me More...
From the highly scented flowers and glossy, evergreen leaves, to the satisfaction of picking home-grown fruit, there is much pleasure to be had from growing a citrus tree. Originating from China, Citrus x mitis 'Calamondin' is thought to be a cross between the kumquat and mandarin, resulting in tart, miniature oranges. Though often grown for ornamental purposes, these oranges do have culinary value, useful for flavouring sauces, dressings, and drinks. As with many citrus trees, Citrus x mitis 'Calamondin' is rarely without flowers and fruit, bearing both simultaneously throughout the year. Though one of the hardiest citruses, it is advisable to overwinter indoors. Container growing is ideal, as it provides the additional benefit of restricting growth to a manageable size.During warmer months, locate Citrus x mitis 'Calamondin' in a sunny, sheltered spot outside, watering freely (ideally with rainwater). Then, during colder months, move to a cool or temperate greenhouse or conservatory, watering sparingly. A tender, evergreen shrub or tree which, if unrestricted, reaches a height of 2m with a spread of 1m.
