Citrus calamondia 'Rangpur'

Rangpur Lime

Mornings would not be the same without juices, like orange or grapefruit, from citrus trees. And summers without lemonade? These shrubby trees produce edible tropical fruits. They have thorny stems and fragrant white flowers that attract bees. Grow in warm climates outdoors or in containers brought in during winter. All types need citrus fertilizer, which has supplemental amounts of iron, magnesium and zinc. Ornamental and dwarf varieties are available. Protect from strong winds and frost.
Citrus calamondia, Rangpur Lime
Not a lime at all, the small, sour, Mandarin-type oranges on this tree are used in fruit punches or drinks. Some fruit throughout the year. If pruned, its thick foliage makes an excellent hedge or screen. Tolerates temperatures to 20° F. Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock tree, reaches 6 to 8 feet tall.
