• Calamansi Lime Seeds


    There are only 3 items left in stock.

    This listing is for freshly collected from the fruit, organically grown on Maui, Calamansi Lime SEEDS.  Offered in packs of  5 (FIVE) fresh SEEDS.  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 (75-85 degrees is ideal). 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.
