These citrus are grown in California.

The Calamondin is a cross between a kumquat and a sour mandarin. At full maturity, the fruit is very small, round, and orange in orange, looking very similar to a kumquat.

Calamondins are extremely acidic, very juicy and contain a few seeds. Rarely eaten out of hand, this citrus has been traditionally used as an ingredient where high acidity is desired. Like a lemon, Calamondin halves or quarters may be served to be squeezed into iced tea, onto seafood and meats, for that added touch of tartness. The juice is often employed in the preparation of gelatin salads or desserts, like custard or chiffon pie.

Calamondin, like all fruits, should be refrigerated and will keep in good condition for two weeks in a home refrigerator.

The following prohibit the shipment of any citrus into their state: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Hawaii.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd day.
