Calamondins are a unique and rare citrus fruit native to China. While it is grown mainly for its looks, the fruits are also edible and resemble a small tangerine- it has a slightly sour taste, with a sweet skin. The blooms will also fill the air with a citrusy aroma. Undoubtedly, for those looking for a unique addition to their gardens and homes, the calamondin is an ideal choice.
Calamondins, being a rather hardy plant, can withstand a variety of conditions. They do best in a location with full sun, but they are shade tolerant. They are drought-tolerant, but should be deeply watered about once a week.
