CITRUS 'MITIS'. Calamondin Orange Tree. Spiral Formation.


Citrus trees instantly bring a piece of the Mediterranean to your garden. Grown in a sunny, sheltered position they will produce crops of delicious sweet fruits even in the UK, with only basic maintenance.
The Citrus 'Mitis', or Calamondin Orange Tree is a cross between a Kumquat and a Tangerine and produces a large quantity of small round edible fruit around 1-2inches in size. The fruit is very long lasting, but is very tart so it can easily take the place of a lemon in recipes and it is also used a lot in Asian cooking.
Perfect as an ornamental tree too with glossy bright green foliage, beautifully scented white blossom and colorful fruit year after year. The trunk is trained in a spiral formation adding extra interest. A very pretty tree, great for growing in containers as a houseplant or on a patio as well as your garden.
