I have lots of little oranges on the calamondin, but have not had any white blossom on it since I bought it (12 months ago) . The lemon plant has not produced any fruit since I bought it also 12 months ago and does not seem to have many leaves left as some leaves fell off in spring is this normal or is it dying? they are both on the window cill of my conservatory is this the best place ?



The fruits of the calamondin are edible, for sure! Not very tasty, quite sour. Eat it with the skin which is a bit sweeter than the flesh, like a chinese dish?! We grow a lot of them here in Eilat, Israel. They need direct sunlight and constant feeding I found. Hope that helps a bit?!
