Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

Is the Calamondin grown in container, and is the plant inside the house or out in a shaded area of the house(like balconey, porch, under a tree, etc.)?

Grafted Calamondin orange tree (or other Citruses) usually bear fruits in about two years. Citruses grown from seed usually take up to 15 years to mature and start fruiting.

I am not aware of any method to force-bloom the Calamondin tree grown from seed before it's time; but you may want to take the plant outside near a grafted grown citrus tree in the spring to see if pollination will rub off from the grafted citrus to your seed grown citrus.
