Fruit Trees > Citrus Trees > Kumquat Tree > Kumquat - Variegated
A highly ornamental kumquat with variegated foliage. Well suited as a pot specimen. Also known as Calamondin it has acid fruit that is most commonly grown in the Philippine Islands although it is probably of Chinese origin. It is believed to be a natural hybrid, with kumquat in the parentage. In the Philippines it is sometimes called calamonding or calamansi. Calamondin is cold-resistant. The fruits are very small, round, and orange at full maturity. The orange flesh is acidic, juicy, and contains a few seeds. If you are a fan of Kumquats then these will be a great addition to your collection. Calamondin trees flower and set fruit intermittently throughout the year, adding to the decorative appeal of these trees.
Other Names: cumquat calamondin Citrus Fortunella microcarpa

It bore no fruit whereever I put it, it then dried out and looked terrible. I then planted it in the ground to hide my shame and it then died/was smothered by other plants.
