What is the etymology of the name "calamondin" and why is there a circumflex over the "i" in Kalamansî? Badagnani 02:20, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

In Tagalog, the circumflex accent over the "i" indicates a word that is stressed on the final syllable and followed by a glottal stop. Accents are often omitted in ordinary writing, but we should include them to be correct. --ABehrens (talk) 20:42, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
To my knowledge if you're from the Philippines, the word Calamondin is another term for Kalamansi in another form of the language "Tagalog". It is still Tagalog but it changes from what City you live. Like the "Kamias" to "Kalamias".

Though, I don't know much about that circumflex over the "i" in Kalamansi.--Logicartery (talk) 04:14, 18 June 2008 (UTC) We in Pampanga, still call the fruit'Kalamunding'. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gemstech (talkcontribs) 04:59, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Somewhat related (but not very helpful) fact: this is the longest English word that can be formed entirely out of two-letter US state abbreviations: CA LA MO ND IN. (The only other 10 letter English word with this property is CASCARILLA.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:50, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

I am quite confused that the calamondin should be identical to a Kalamansi. Kalamnsi fruits I encountered in Asia were small (diamter 2- 3cm) round and green. They were never orange. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:20, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

I agree. Inspite of what Wikipedia says, the calamansi is not tha same as kalamunding. We had a calamansi tree right outside our kitchen door, and while it bore fruit all year round, none were ever orange. The very ripe fruit would be yellow and still sour. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:35, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

I think the picture is wrong. It's like pure Oranges to be honest. I'll try to change it to a more appropriate one.--JCD (Talk) 15:09, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

I have never encountered an orange kalamansi as well, they have always been bright yellow when ripe. I doubt it's the same species as calamondin at all (which I assume is the species which is referred to as Panama Orange/Chinese Orange as well). Calamondin, as understood by non-filipinos, are slightly larger than kalamansi (the size of a kumquat), though both are still far smaller than oranges, and orange in color when ripe.
Also alternative spellings and pronunciations to kalamansi that I've encountered include the spanish style calamansi, cebuano kamansi and kamanse, and hispanic AND cebuano lemoncito.--Astepintooblivion (talk) 08:58, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Merger Proposal[edit]

× Citrofortunella mitis is the outdated name of × Citrofortunella microcarpa[1]. The two entries obviously treat the same item. Since the entry on × C. mitis is a stub, it should be merged into × C. microcarpa. Filousoph (talk) 22:52, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
