Q.Calamondin Fruit Has Soft Discolored Bottom

Zone Newport NC | auxman610 added on September 29, 2021 | Answered

This is the first ripe fruit taken from our calamondin tree. The tree is in a pot and has been outside all spring/summer (zone 8A). The one fruit has a soft discolored base, clearly not healthy I suspect. The fruit just reached a full orange color, did I wait too long to remove it from the tree?
