The largest size of Calamondin (Citrus microcarpa or Citrus mitus) in our citrus collection, these mature trees will make a dramatic focal point in a bright room in the winter, or on a patio in the summer. They are also the easiest of the citrus to look after and very rewarding as they provide interest all year round constantly either flowering and fruiting. Although pretty tart, calamondins are delicious whether they are orange or green, and can be sliced in drinks or made into a delicious marmalade.
Current Description
Our giant calamondin are looking great this week with a bushy head of foliage and are just starting to bud up again for their next flush of flowers and fruit. New photos coming soon to reflect that they don't have any ripe calamondin on them.

Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

This orange tree has both decorative fruit and fragrant flowers - sometimes both at once. It is a Calamondin - a cross between a kumquat and a mandarin and is the easiest citrus tree to grow indoors. It can bring pleasure for years with the right care.

Citrus trees, like lots of light and a cool but not cold room. A light room near a window or a conservatory is ideal. In winter, try and keep your tree away from central heating and in the summer protect it from strong direct sunlight. In the heat of summer, you can give your plant a holiday. Put it outside on a sheltered patio and it will enjoy the fresh air. Bring it back inside when there is a nip in the evening air. Your plant will start to suffer in temperatures below 8°C.

Water thoroughly from the top once or twice a week (more in hot weather) and let the excess water drain away. The roots should not be left to stand in water. A citrus feed added to the water every couple of weeks can also help to maintain a healthy plant.

These dwarf trees can grow to a maximum of two metres, producing masses of fruit every year. The fruits of this tree are very tart. However, they make a refreshing and unusual addition to cold drinks, they can be used in place of other citrus in fish and game dishes and make a wonderful marmalade!

Problem Solving

Overwatering, underwatering and shock can all be the cause of leaf drop. One or two leaves is not something to worry about but more than 10 and your plant is not happy. However, in most cases, return to a regular watering routine and temperature will lead to recovery.

If the new growth on your plant is very light in colour or has a mottled look, it is likely that your plant is lacking one of the trace elements. A good citrus feed added when watering should soon colour the leaves up. In the unlikely event that you find any pests (e.g. aphids or caterpillars) on your plant use a soft soap or pest spray to wash off the offending creatures and pick off any damaged leaves to keep the plant tidy.
