Miniature ‘Orange’ with Year Round Blooms Calamondin oranges are little tricksters. They look like oranges, just smaller versions. They smell like oranges when they are in bloom. They juice like oranges when they are sliced. But all that enticing ‘orangeness’ gets tossed out the window when you taste one. The taste is much closer to a sour lime than a sweet orange! Calamondin fruit is most often used in cooking to take the place of lemon or lime. These are a great substitute for anything you would use a sour citrus for – fish, chicken, iced tea, Asian cuisine, baking, etc. In Florida in the 50’s Calamondin Orange trees were all the rage for the home landscape. You would often see stands selling a sweet lemonade-like drink made with Calamondin instead of lemons. They make a great marmalade, too. These trees have a nice shape which makes them standouts in the landscape or in the container. They are often used in ornamental bonsai. They can have flowers and fruit at the same time, so they make great specimens for greenhouse or indoor culture. When the trees are in bloom they will perfume your entire house. Nature Hills ships out large, established trees that are a minimum of three years old, have extensive branching and some of the largest root systems available. The sooner that you order, the sooner you can be enjoying the conversation-starting fruit from these beautiful trees. * Small, round sweet/sour fruit* Very cold-hardy* Great in containers* Great for cooking and juicing.
