Also known as the Philippine Lime, Calamonding or calamansi, the Calamondin Orange is both beautiful and practical.

Its variegated foliage - green leaves edged with cream - will add interest to any patio or conservatory, while the small white flowers will scent the area with their fragrance.

The fruits, which look like small oranges, have a sweet peel and slightly sour and acidic yet juicy flesh, and have many culinary uses. In the Philippines, due to the warmer climate the fruits remain green; in cooler climates the fruits ripen to orange. The fruits can be variegated whilst ripening and look very pretty.

Thought to originate from China. Commonly found in the Phillippines.

  • Grow in a container as a shrub or small tree.
  • Can be placed on the patio in summer but should be brought in during the winter.
  • Sensitive to extreme or prolonged cold.
  • Enjoys bright sunlight.
  • Will not tolerate waterlogging.
  • White flowers are highly scented.
  • Ripens to a tangerine-sized, orange-coloured fruit, looking similar to a tangerine!

Culinary Uses

  • Fruit can be eaten raw but is used primarily for cooking.
  • The peel is sweet while the fruit is sour.
  • Fruit can be frozen whole to be used as ice cubes.
  • Juice can be made into a drink similar to lemonade.
  • Juice can be used to season fish, chicken or pork.
  • Mix juice with soy sauce as a dipping sauce.
  • Fruit can be made into marmalade or couli.

Medicinal Uses

  • Fruit is rich in Vitamins A and C.
  • Used in treatments for acne, cough suppression and insect bites.

Other Uses

  • Used as a deodorant.
  • Useful as a hair conditioner.
  • Essential oil is used in cleaning products because of its odour-suppressing properties.
