Calamansi Tips

  • Flower Induction of Calamansi For flower induction I spray my Calamansi with a plain variety of urea 2 percent by volume. If it naturally flowers at the time when everyone else has flowers and you don’t want fruit when everyone else has fruit, I spray the flowers which of course fall off. Then I induce them to flower after a few weeks and more quietly this time, laugh when I alone harvest off-season Calamansi!   Ref: Alexis de Manuel
     
  • Verman from the Philippines says that he propagated scions from a calamansi tree and kept it with wet toilet paper in a Ziploc bag kept a in the crisper section of his refrigerator – easy to graft. Just follow the steps shown in the group's file section.  Ref:  rarefruit-ph@yahoo.com
