Comments: The calamondin is an excellent small bushy evergreen tree that produces delightfully fragrant white flowers in early spring and small orange fruit in autumn and winter. The tree is well adapted to growing in containers, in mass plantings to make an excellent privacy hedge or as a single specimen tree in the landscape. This citrus is relatively cold hardy and can tolerate moderate freezes in its range of growth. For best fruiting, plant in a location that receives full sunlight for most of the day.
