73 and still gardening

Variegated Calamondin

variegated lemonsito

Citrus madurensis is an acid fruit that is most commonly grown here in the Philippines.  It is  known as Kalamasi in many areas but here in my hometown its called Lemonsito.

I’ve planted this variegated form (sometimes marketed under the name Peters), with marbled leaves and faintly-striped fruit in my garden for cooking and for landscape purposes.
