Looks nice!  Calomondins are easy to grow and attractive.  I even like the fruit

Yesterday I was at a nursery in NJ that had a large calomondin in a container.  An employee told me it was ~40yrs old if I heard her right.   I had never seen one this large.

I have a calamondin in a container that is about 30 years old and that size but not as bushy.

Here's a kumquat, mandarinquat, and calamondin grown from seed:

(calamondin is the one in back, mandarinquat in front)

I have a few calomondins, but here is the largest one.  It is a bit lopsided but has been very healthy.  It appears to have been grown from a cutting, in fact I guess this is the norm as all of my calomondins look that way.  I don't remember how old it is, 3-4yrs maybe.
