Calamansi Lime Seeds
This listing is for freshly collected from the fruit Maui grown Calamansi Lime SEEDS. Offered in packs of 5 (FIVE) fresh SEEDS. Larger sized seed packets offered when available. Your fresh Calamansi Lime seeds are shipped to you wet packed in damp paper toweling inside sealed plastic baggies. Your seeds may germinate on their way to you. You can observe your seeds germinate in the baggies that they arrive in before planting in containers of good potting soil.
Please note, like many citrus seeds will do, 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 we mean about one seed dividing into 2 or 4 seedlings.
At first this miniature fruit appears to be a kumquat, or a tiny orange, but it is truly called a LIME. The bright orange skin is edible, eat the whole fruit, peel and all. The juice of this sweet lime fruit elevates any dish it is added to. The leaves are used in some types of cooking. The bright pretty little fruits have a tangy, lemony taste. Try growing this container suitable Citrus tree for yourself.
PLEASE INSPECT YOUR SEEDS ON ARRIVAL. ONCE YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR FRESH FROM THE FRUIT, LIVE SEEDS FROM US SAFELY IT IS UP TO YOU TO GROW THEM. OUR PART IS DONE. PLEASE PLAN ON RESEARCHING HOW TO GROW THIS PLANT IN YOUR AREA. Written growing instructions are not offered with or after you receive your seeds safely. Your seeds will arrive wet packed and may germinate on their way to you.
You can germinate your Calamansi Lime seeds, and most larger seeds, in a plastic baggie in damp paper toweling. No sunlight is needed, a dark corner of a room kept warm (75-85 degrees is ideal). Date + label your bags of seeds and check on them daily. Plant in containers of good potting soil and water evenly once you have seedlings with a set of leaves.
