First cultivated in China, the Calamondin orange is a little larger than a quarter and typically does not exceed one inch in diameter. Calamondin oranges have a lot of flavor for its small size, offering an especially sour tangy flavor. The rind is thin, easy to peel and reveals an extremely juicy flesh.
Calamondin oranges are a hybrid of a Kumquat and a Mandarin and are widely grown and used in the Philippines and throughout Malaysia where they are often called Calamonding or Calamansi
