Calamondin is a cross between the Mandarin Orange and the Kumquat. It has a very even and rounded bush growth habit which along with its propensity to flower and fruit in huge quantities makes it one of the easiest and most rewarding citrus to grow in the UK. The small fruits have a very thin skin and it is advised to cut the fruits from the tree rather than to pull the fruits to avoid tearing. The skin is sweet whilst the flesh is very acid, making for a real zing when eaten whole which you can most certainly do. It is very high in vitamin C. Calamondin is self-fertile.Looking after your Calamondin Citrus Plant Citrus trees are surprisingly hardy, tolerating temperatures down to -5°C and will thrive in most gardens given a warm sunny position. In the UK they are probably best grown in a large pot or other suitable container as this will allow them to be moved as conditions dictate. Citrus Trees will not however tolerate wet conditions and water-logging for any length of time will usually result in the loss of a plant. For this reason they should be grown in very free draining soil or compost.
