GENERAL INFORMATION

  • This Plant symbolizes unlimited prosperity and happiness.
  • It would make ideal gifts as well as home/office decor during this festive season.
  • Kumquat (Fortunella japonica syn. Citrus japonica), sometimes spelled cumquat or comquot, is a small citrus fruit that grows in climates too cool for other citrus plants.
  • The fruit is sweet and tart at the same time and is eaten without removing the peel.
  • Kumquat trees are beautiful, with dark, glossy green leaves and bright orange fruit which is both gorgeous and delicious.
  • Though considered by many a citrus fruit, they are actually classified in the genus, Fortunella.
  • The most commonly grown type is the Nagami kumquats, which have oblong fruit.
  • When ripe, kumquats have sweet, edible skin and sour fruit inside.
  • They can be eaten whole, made into marmalade, or used in other dishes.
  • When grown outdoors, kumquat trees can reach 8 feet tall and 6 feet wide.
  • Grown in pots, their size will be smaller.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Kumquats are 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.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER

  • Moderate amounts of fertilizer are needed during the active growing season.
  • Reduce and restrict fertilizer when going into the winter season.
  • There are several excellent citrus fertilizers on the market but any organic balanced fertilizer will work.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Full to partial sun is required for growing kumquats.
  • The more light the better but as with all citrus, they can be grown indoors on an east or west-facing window and flower and produce fruit.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • You should keep the soil moist around young trees, but not wet or soggy.
  • Once the tree is established, water during dry spells.
