Variegated Calamondin

Citrus madurensis Loureiro still bears white blossoms even in its variegated variety. Calamondin trees flower and set fruit throughout the year; the marbled leaves and faintly-striped fruit add a decorative touch to any garden.

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.
