Re: Tepid....citrus

Don't know anything about calamondins, Noreen, except they sure do produce a lot of fruit. I've always heard they were sour, but don't think I've ever tasted one. I've got too many citrus to add another one. I've got a sweet lemon, two palestine limes, and a blood orange to plant. Thank goodness the limes and orange are still small and can coast along in pots while I try to decide where to put them.

Not too long ago, I was at a friend's house that had Calamondins. He asked
if I wanted some seed. I told him no, that I already had a citrofortunella
that was sour that I use in drinks (Cuba Libre especially), don't need any
more sour citrus. He informed me that I must have been eating them wrong.
Picked a fruit and told me to eat it like a Kumquat.....skin and all. Of course
I wrinkled my nose at him, but he said to go ahead that the skin was very
thin. Sure enough.....I'm not much of a fan of Kumquats anyway, but this was
actually not bad. It was really good. So I'm seriously thinking of adding it
to my citrus trees.

Jim, are there certain Calamondins, or are they all pretty much like this.
Just wondering.

I do not particularly like
calamondins, although they make great marmalade and a nice drink is
made from the juice with a bit of sweetener.
