CITROFORTUNELLA MICROCARPA, CALAMONDIN, Orange citrus tree
A citrus plant with fragrant flowers that appear all year around with brightly coloured fruit ripening up to 12 months later. Citrus fruits add a wonderful impact to any home.
Plant position and soil: Citrus are not particularly hardy so whilst they can be grown outdoors in Summer they must come indoors to the conservatory in Winter for a bright and frost free environment in order to thrive. They prefer a cooler environment and do not like central heating which scorches them. Water well in the Summer, in winter, allow the surface to dry out partially before re-watering..Winter overwatering is a common problem, so err on the side of caution and stay dry.
Calamondin oranges need a minimum winter night temperature of 13°C (55°F).
