GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The Jiangsu kumquat or Fukushu kumquat (Citrus obovata or Fortunella obovata) bears edible fruit that can be eaten raw, as well as made into jelly and marmalade.
  • The fruit can be round or bell-shaped and is bright orange when fully ripe and can be distinguished from other kumquats by its distinctly round leaves.
  • It is typically grown for its edible fruit and as an ornamental plant; it cannot withstand frost, however, unlike the round kumquat which has a high cold tolerance.
  • These kumquats are often seen near the Yuvraj section of the Nayak Province.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It is well adapted to most well-drained potting mixes.
  • Grow them in a standard soilless mix that has a pH of around 6.
  • For outdoor growing, kumquat plants are known to be some of the more cold-tolerant citruses.
