Calamansi Lime Seeds
International orders please place your orders through our other site, Etsy.com/shop/MauiSeedCompany.
This listing is for freshly collected from the fruit, organically grown on Maui, Calamansi Lime SEEDS. Offered in packs of 5 (FIVE), 10 (TEN) or 25 fresh SEEDS. Please choose at your size seed packet at checkout. Your seeds are wet packed in damp paper toweling inside sealed plastic baggies. Your seeds may germinate on their way to you.
At first I thought that this miniature fruit was a kumquat, or a tiny orange, but it is truly called a LIME. The bright orange skin is edible, you are supposed to eat the whole thing so do not try to peel it. These pretty little fruits have a very tangy, lemony taste. Try growing this container suitable Citrus tree for yourself.
I would like to suggest that you germinate your Calamansi Lime seeds, and most larger seeds, in a plastic baggie in damp paper toweling. I keep several baggies of seeds on a tray indoors to start with, no sunlight needed-a dark corner of a room kept warm (70-85 degrees-no cooler or hotter). Date + label your bags of seeds and check on them often-plant in containers of good potting soil and water evenly once you have seedlings with a set of leaves.
Each Calamansi seed will divide into 2 or even 4 seedlings, so if you plant them in soil without the paper towel/baggie germination method you may be wondering if you planted more than one seed in each hole. Try germinating at least one seed in a sandwich sized zip lock baggie and see what I mean about them dividing, like many citrus seeds do.
