Planting & Care

Calamondins grow best outdoors in direct sunlight and require a rich soil mixture of native soil and grow mulch. This tree must have well-draining soil and will not tolerate standing in water. Mulching helps retain moisture and helps to stabilize the soil temperature. They requires full sun, 6 - 8 hours a day and consistent moisture. Trees will produce several flushes of frgrant white blossoms eveyr year, but most fruit ripens between June and November. Calamondins can easily be kept small with regular pruning and do very well as container plants.
