2 years ago my wife found a small calamansi at the garden center at walmart. That is her prized plant and for being so small provides many fruit. Of course during the winter it is a small decorative plant in our living room.

We enjoy fresh Calamansi juice. Graham do you do anything special to care for it?

Earthdome... Would you happen to know the variety your plant is?

No idea. The tag that came with it is long gone. It is small, no more than 2 feet in diameter in any direction. It currently has 3 - 4 dozen fruit on it.

Not really. Just planted in amongst other young bushes and trees, and watered each day during the dry season. On a slope, so presumably well-drained...though clay soil.  It's about 6 feet tall now, and we'd already taken some fruit from it before I took that pic.

Kalamansi is a briliant fruit, with outstanding juice ( and lots pips/seeds !) and Ive seen in some provinces that its very easy to grow.

 

As I live in a condo hard to grow much on my balconies but a couple months ago I planted some chia seeds just to see what would happen...darn.. they are now maybe 1.5 feet tall and the leaves are brilliant in salads. So are chili plant leaves that I also grow. Tried with flax seeds but that doesnt seem to work in same way.

I've found Kalimansi to be a very good treatment for colds/flu. Don't just ask for Kalimansi juice- ask for strong Kalimansi juice.

I have found that high doses of Vitamin C help me with cold and flu symptoms.  I bet there is a large dose of Vitamin C in your strong Calamansi juice.
