Calamondin (Citrus microcarpa or Citrus mitus) are the easiest to care for of all the citrus trees. These more mature plants will look super on a table or windowsill in any bright spot in the home. They are the plant that keeps on giving as they produce striking orange fruit and fragrant flowers throughout the year making them a great gift.
Current Description
These large calamondin are looking super this week with a bushy head of foliage covered with green and orange ripening fruits as pictured. Although a smaller size for us, they are still 4 year old plants. Good to know: While we take every care wrapping our plants, it is not unusual for the odd fruit to be dislodged in transit, especially when they are ripe and / or heavy on the tree. The good news is that you can use these right away, and it will encourage the plant to flower again.

Excellent quality plant with important care instructions. Lots of green fruit which hopefully will ripen over the summer. Useful to be able to buy an appropriate feed for the plant at the same time.

Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

This 4 year old 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 your tree thoroughly from the top when the top of the soil is bone dry. This will depend on the warmth of the room and could be anything from 8 days to 3-4 weeks. Always wait until the top of the soil is bone dry and the plant feels light when you pick it up before watering again. During the summer, it could be up to once a day. 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!.

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 (eg. 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.

The fruit of this tree are very tart, so don't try and eat them raw. However they make a refreshing and unusual addition to cold drinks and and add a great flavour to game and poultry dishes.
