Description

Kumquats resemble little oval oranges but have a tangy, slightly sour flavour. However the peel is also edible and has a lovely sweet flavour, creating a fabulous sweet and sour experience when they are eaten whole. These unusual citrus trees produce fragrant white flowers which are followed by the bright orange fruits, which make fabulous marmalade!

Kumquat trees are capable of surviving brief periods below 0C, but are best grown in large containers and moved indoors to a bright frost free position from autumn to spring. This tree is self fertile and will not need a pollination companion. Height: 3m (9’). Spread: 2.5m (8’).


1 x 15cm potted kumquat plant (KB1769)

How to Grow
Plant citrus trees in patio containers in a mix of ericaceous compost and neutral, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the plant at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in a frost free position in full sun.
More Info
Stand citrus trees outside from May to October. Water freely in summer and mist leaves daily to increase humidity and discourage pests. Feed with citrus plant fertiliser every 2 weeks. Move plants indoors from October to a bright, frost free position (4-12°C) away from cold draughts and radiators. Reduce watering in winter but do not let the plant dry out completely. Too much or too little water may cause the fruits to drop.
