Calamondin Calamansi Lemonsito

I was looking for different kinds of citrus and I found what I was looking for in Walmart at Goldenrod in Orlando. When I went to Walmart few weeks ago, it was raining and for safety measures, they close the garden center. We went back three times and was lucky to go there with clear skies. I bought citrus plants: lime, calamondin and sour orange. I am glad to find Calamondin because this is native in the Philippines. We call it calamansi in the Philippines and lemonsito in my dialect but, calamondin is also called golden lime, panama orange, chinese orange, acid orange, calamonding and calamandarin.

Calamondin is used to flavor foods and drinks. It is a medicinal plant too. It can be used as itching relief, body deodorant, natural acne medicine, cough medicine and many more. I heard that in Malaysia, calamondin is used as antidote from poison. My aunt would use it as a hair conditioner and I remember it makes her hair smooth and smells fresh. Right now, I am thinking of grilled baby back ribs and drooling for a dipping sauce with calamondin and chili. Yum!
