Important notice! Most citrus plants on the market are produced for planting in orchards in the Mediterranean countries. They have a large overall height, have high graft and are difficult to shape and support at home. Rootstocks on which they are grafted are very fast growing, which is fine for the open ground in the subtropics, but is not desirable when growing in pot in the temperate climate.

All our small citrus plants are produced specifically for the Bulgarian market and are ideally suited for home cultivation. The rootstocks cause compact growth, grafts are low and this allows making an excellent shape of the crown, to be suitable for growing in pots. The used rootstocks are trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata 'Flying Dragon') and Volkamer lemon, Citrus volkameriana. Trifoliate orange is frost-hardy to -25°C, and significantly increases the cold resistance of plants grafted on it.

 

 

Citrofortunella mitis variegata, Calamondin variegated,

the perfect ornamental citrus from Botanical Garden - Plovdiv, Bulgaria

 

 

If you want a mandarin plant, which blooms all year round and freshens the air with a pleasant fragrance, to set fruits throughout the year, and is laden with ripe fruit throughout the year, the Calamondin should be your choice. This is probably the best ornamental citrus. Fruits are sour but as they stay on the tree all year round, usually they are left for decoration.

As with all other Citrus plants, the Calamondin is susceptible to scales and spider mites and needs to be sprayed twice a year.

In winter it will need a cool place with temperatures 0-10 degrees Celsius. If the temperature is higher, the leaves usually fall off. In summer it needs to be outside and abundantly watered.
