Calamondin Tangerine Tree
The Calamondin tangerine tree is a spectacular ornamental, bearing bright orange, tiny tangerines. In itâ€™s native homeland of Southeast Asia it is often called calamansi.
The pulp is quite acidic and juicy with a tender sweet rind. Often eaten whole this combination of skin and pulp gives it pleasant sweet tart sensation. Sweeten for a delicious drink or use as a lime substitute. The fruit are wonderful in marmalade or cut in half and floated in ice tea.
Trees are ever-bearing and make one of the most stunning container plants. Somewhat cold hardy, it can be grown outside in more northern climates. Calamondin are ever-bearing, so they have no specific harvest months.Â So when they snap off the branch easily, that is when they should be ripe.Â Let your taste buds be the judge.
