Here Come the Citrus!
Calamondin Orange Trees Blossom & Fruit Simultaneously, Providing Sporadic Harvests Throughout the Year and a House Filled with Seductive Scent
It’s citrus season here in my indoor eden, and although the harvest does not include larger fruits, these Meyer lemons, Calamondin oranges and Key limes still pack a powerful punch. Is there anything more uplifting than a jolt of tart-sweet flavor and brilliant color on a northern table at this time of year? It’s almost enough to make you forget the coming nor’easter!
I’m sure I’ll be sharing a citrus-based recipe or two over the coming weeks, but in meantime you may want to consider adding a tree to your own home. Calamondin oranges are easy to grow and perform much better as houseplants than other citrus trees. Meyer lemons are another good choice, and Key limes also do well. Travel back to last year’s post —Calamondin Orange: Sunshine in a Pot— to learn more about selecting and growing Calamondins and other citrus trees indoors.
The Calamondin’s are Comin’ On
