Variegated Calamondin

A fairly vigorous, highly productive tree with a rounded compact habit and small, oval leaves. The small, white flowers have a heady, delicate fragrance. The fruit is small and spherical like the common calamondin but differs in its unusual variegated leaves and fruit, which presents light green lengthwise stripes on the rind. This is a very decorative, reflowering plant with flowers and fruits almost all year round.
