Calamondin is a cross between a mandarin orange and a kumquat, this one-year old productive tree yields small fruit, similar to traditional oranges but with a zestier flavor. Like the kumquat, the fruit’s peel is sweet/tart while the flesh is tangy – often eaten whole, or used in chutney, marmalade, and as a substitute for limes. Juice is favored in beverages and desserts. Tree has ornamental appeal and fragrant flowers. May bloom again while fruit still remains on the tree, allowing for different harvest intervals.
