My front balcony look so colorful this week.
The orange, yellow and yellowish green looks so dominant.
My acid orange (Citrofortunella mitis) is full of fruits.... over loaded...
Common names include calamonding, calamandarin, golden lime, Panama orange, Chinese orange or calamondin.
This fruit is so unique.
The peel have a sweet taste, but the pulp is quite sour and high in vitamin C.
Acid orange fruit is grown primarily as an ornamental plant in gardens, and in containers.
The plant is especially attractive when the fruits are present.
The little fruits have a little size, just 25 - 35 mm in diameters.

The juice can relieve the itching and reduce the irritation caused by insect bites.
The fruit can also be used as a natural acne medicine or taken orally as cough and influenza medicine.
For constipation treat, the juice is warmed and diluted with boiled water.
It bleaches freckles and helps to clear up acne.
It is also used in skin and hair care products to reduce dandruff and hair fall.
So.... it's really useful plant!
|Fresh vitamin C source.... The nearest drug store...???|

Also give me more.... oxygen, Vitamin C, beautiful vista, fresh fragrant flower, green living, and more.... more.... more....
