Moon Valley Nurseries grows our citrus on guaranteed great rootstock so that we can offer cold hardy trees that bear the juiciest citrus that’s delicious whether eating one whole or using them for making marmalade!
The ripe Calamondin fruit holds well and creates a beautiful contrast with the dense green foliage and fragrant white flowers, making them one of the most beautiful ornamental trees you can find. We like to plant them as a landscape tree for use as a hedge or stylish privacy screen! We also like to plant Calamondin trees near windows so that you can enjoy the sight and fragrance of the showy white flowers!
Our Calamondin trees are grown in our local climate so that they can thrive in our area and are ready to bring year-round interest to any landscape. They are easy-to-care-for and like to grow in a location with partial to full sun exposures. Once established, they have low to moderate watering needs and like to be fed with fertilizer before new growth begins for the best development.
