3+ years old Grafted Calamansi onto trifoliate. The plants are going to flower this season. A large size,  beautiful and healthy looking plant.  

This is the real Asian calamansi or Filipino Citrus plant. They are slightly different than the cross bred calamansi and has a distinguished smell and an intense lime taste. Plants are well established most already producing flowers/fruit at the moment.

Calamansi is a small citrus fruit, with a bright orange flesh and a peel that goes from green to orange as it ripens. It tastes sour with a hint of sweetness, like a mix between a lime and a mandarin. It has a distinctive aroma – citrusy and floral.

One of the most popular citrus and widely used in Asian cuisine, Calamansi can be found in fruit juices, and as a garnish for other well-known meals in Asian cuisine.

Plant Care

  • Soil: Prefers well-draining, fertile soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0.
  • Watering: Water deeply and regularly, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings.
  • Temperature: Thrives in temperatures between 15°C and 30°C. Protect from frost.
  • Light: Full sun is essential for optimal growth and fruit production.
  • Fertilising: Use a citrus-specific NPK fertilizer with micronutrients, typically a ratio like 6-3-3, every four to six weeks during the growing season.
  • Pruning: Prune to shape, improve airflow, and remove dead or diseased branches in late winter or early spring.
  • Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base to help retain moisture and suppress weeds, but keep it away from the trunk.
  • Pest Control: Monitor for citrus pests such as scale, mites, and citrus leaf miner. Treat with appropriate insecticides or natural remedies.
  • Flowering and Fruiting: Blooms in spring with fruit development continuing through summer and into fall, depending on the variety.
  • Potting: Suitable for container growing, especially dwarf varieties. Ensure containers have good drainage.
  • Feeding Regime: Increase feeding frequency during peak growing and fruiting periods.

We ship our plants and garden supplies throughout New Zealand. Due to the increased costs of shipping and packaging, we now apply a minimal delivery charge. After offering free shipping for three consecutive years, we find it necessary to adjust this policy to align with current market conditions. However, we have lowered our prices to help offset this change.

Please note, we do not ship plants or garden supplies internationally from New Zealand. We do export plants and tissue culture materials from our overseas nursery, which requires a minimum order. Please contact us at hello@exoticanz.com to discuss your specific requirements.

Delivery

  • Our plants are available for shipment throughout the year, depending on stock levels. Typical delivery times range from 5 to 7 business days, although they can take up to 10 business days depending on the destination.
  • We take extra care in packaging; most of our plants are secured in bespoke inserts and shipped in individual boxes to ensure they arrive undamaged.
  • Deliveries are scheduled once a week, typically on Monday. If you place your order over the weekend, we aim to dispatch your plants on the following Monday. This scheduling allows our team to prepare your order thoroughly and ensures the courier has sufficient time to deliver your plants safely, avoiding any unnecessary delays over the weekend.
  • All orders are shipped via courier track and trace service (not signature required)
  • We cannot deliver to PO Box addresses.
  • If you have a rural address, please contact us beforehand to discuss the best delivery options and avoid any potential issues.

Additional Delivery Information

  • We dispatch our plants year-round, as most are shipped with soil. During the winter months, we closely monitor weather conditions and may temporarily delay shipments if the weather is particularly severe. Our packing process includes adding insulation when necessary to protect the plants against temperature extremes.
  • In summer, we ensure that plants are thoroughly watered before they leave our nursery. Occasionally, we may need to ship plants bare-rooted, particularly when they cannot be comfortably re-potted into smaller packaging for shipping. We will always discuss this with you in advance if your plant needs to be shipped in this manner.
  • It's important to note that shipping can be a stressful experience for plants, often due to spending several days in a dark, confined space. While most plants withstand this with little to no stress, some may experience leaf drop. However, they generally recover quickly with some additional care, including proper watering and gradual reintroduction to light after arrival.

All the plants that I have ordered from Exotica (4citrus, 3dragon fruits) arrived in very good condition and looks healthy. Will definitely buy some plants again in the future.

Calamansi Plant

Rose was easy to communicate with. The plant arrived looking fresh and healthy. I was concerned that it was supposed to arrive on Monday but got to us on Tuesday. The plant was a bit smaller than in the picture I saw where it looked bigger and taller. But it is okay. I don’t think it will fruit this year verses what I was told.

Grafter calamnsi

Compared to the airlayered calamansi i bought early this year, this grafter calamnsi does not have fruits though it has some flowers, the leaves have yellow tinge to it and is not as bushy as the air layered one.

Epic little lime

This little gem is just a stunner purchased February 2022 she is producing ripe fruit now. Stayed evergreen through winter last year. We live costal so very windy even in sheltered spot still is exposed to wind but is growing quickly in pot. I’m gonna move and plant in my orchard(very exposed to high winds) have other citrus young trees covered but have two older citrus that are booming. Will update review when tree has been planted in ground after winter. Packaging was the BEST as always.
