Calamondin Orange

Calamondin Orange (Citrum mitis)

Flowers and a developing fruit on my Calamondin Orange. The fruit is quite small, even when ripe. I have in the past candied them whole. The shrub lives in the conservatory, but goes outdoors in summer.

As the plant is now indoors, will have to go around with the pollination brush.

Amy, At present there are 7 flowers open, quite small, so doesn't fill the room with scent, but if you sniff the flowers yes, orangey. When there are more open, maybe 20 and the conservatory has sun on it, hopefully the scent will be more intense.

That is interesting about the peel, Homebird. Have tried the whole thing, quite tart!
