This evergreen shrub makes a lovely plant for the conservatory or greenhouse. It is also called x Citrofortunella mitis. It has fairly glossy, bright evergreen leaves and a few short spines on the stems. Saucer-shaped, waxy, white flowers are produced from spring to summer, followed by spherical, yellow then orange fruits. These are the fruits that can be used to make marmalade. Grow calamondin under glass in loam-based potting compost, in bright light with shade from direct, hot sunlight. Give good ventilation, mist regularly and feed once a month during the active growing season. You can take it on to the patio during warm summers, but shade from strong sunlight. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
