Calamondin oranges bring tart fruit enjoyment
Your calamondin sapling is a cross between mandarin and kumquat. Citrus mitis owes its easy maintenance to the robust kumquat plant. The botanical relationship with the mandarin is evident in the shape and color of its fruits. As a result, calamondin oranges are not poisonous, but suitable for consumption.
If the fruits are too sour for fresh consumption, they can be processed into jam. In combination with other exotic fruits, calamondin oranges give your fruit punch or a rum pot a unique aroma. Although the peels are not edible, they can still be dried and grated to optimize your favorite tea blend.
