Description: The most popular potted citrus plant, the Calamondin Orange is a lovely variety of citrus, producing small, tangerine like oranges that are suitable for eating. Calamondin oranges will bloom year round, filling the air around it with a delicious citrus aroma. Fruits and flowers often appear at the same time, and the fruits may take up to a year to ripen, maintaining its ornamental value for much longer than other citrus varieties.
