The tree is almost as pretty as your legs and crotch. Almost.

Once again, thank you Chad. While I appreciate the compliment, Kal is a bit saddened.

WOW! You know my mom uses this for a lot of Indonesian dishes. I knew of Calamansi in that Filipino drink, but never realized that it was the same fruit I've been enjoying in Indonesian Sambal and Kankung Pecel all my life.

Kudos for finding it at a hardware store!

Okay, that comment went through. I guess it was plain ol' user error the last time! ;-)

Thanks Elmo. I'm hoping it's not long until it starts bearing fruit.

Hi, I found your blog through Dessert Comes First. I can relate to your voyage of discovery of Pinoy food. Like your brother, I myself used to think I wasn't a fan -- and I live in the Philippines! But reading about it in food blogs like Market Manila has enlivened my interest and appreciation of the food I grew up with.

This post just made me realize that I don't think I've ever seen orange kalamansi before; only green. I suppose it turns that color when ripe, and I've only ever seen it unripe? Have you tasted it once it's orange, is it sweeter?

By the way, you're hilarious! I'll be coming back for sure...that is, unless you get sick of my frequent comments and block me. ;-)

Thanks Katrina. I'm glad someone is laughing out there. And I've wondered about green Kalamansi as well. In all my pinoy cookbooks and in all my online searches, they seem to be always green, but here in the U.S. I've always had it orange. It's still very sour when it is orange, but as soon as Kal bears some fruit I will experiment with both.

Where did you buy the Kalamansi tree from? I've been looking for one too but have not been successful. I'm also in SoCal.

Penang, I found the Kalamansi tree at Orchard Supply Hardware (OSH). The company that distributes them is fourwindsgrowers.com. You can also mail order from fourwinds. Good luck in your search.

Oh better make sure you got the real kind because my aunt thought she got a kalamansi tree only to find out later it was some hybrid thing. I think after some time you have to take it out of the pot. My uncle was able to successfully grow a kalamansi tree even under the Vegas heat and we get our supply from him LOL

nothing is better than kalamansi for that beef steak marinade. Lemon just doesnt cut it.

im glad that Kalamansi tree can be found in the USA.

i used to work for a promotions agency, and it was our task to promote philippine products aboard.

one of the banner products is Kalamansi. so happy that slowly Philippine products in gaining recognition thru people like you.


hi raissa, i'm pretty sure I've got the real thing, but I am having some trouble growing my kalamansi.

hi joy, I'm glad I could do my part to promote products from the Philippines.

I will ask my uncle how he did it or my grandma. We need more kalamansi here in SoCal.

Dude! I was looking for a Kalamansi tree and I googled it online and I came across your website. I live right by a OSH... I'm so gonna check it out tomorrow.

Your writing style is great.. Really funny.. I used to raid my neighbors tree on Guam.. Now I want my own

You actually do have nice legs. Not overly hairy and scary.

I have lots of kalamansi in ourplace but it is in bataan...we are growers..my father inlaw has a skil in budding and markotting...I have lots of photos of kalamansi small plan and grown one.

make sure you use scissors to cut stem from plant, Kalamansi is extremey sensitve when it comes to puling off friut from plant, or else it withers away from pain.

Oh lordy, the tree is lovely and the blog has me laughing at my desk at work. A Superman and Webster reference all in one post? Genius. By the way, I love the blog as a whole -- I had to add it to my blogroll!
