The kumquat is quite an interesting fruit. Instead of the pulp, the sweetest part of this citrus fruit is actually the peel. Nagami Kumquats make delicious marmalades, preserves, and dried fruits.

The tartness also makes them a choice secret ingredient to liven up your recipes. Enjoy the distinctive taste of the Nagami Kumquat. It is the only citrus fruit that can be eaten skin and all. If you have a sweet tooth, eat the skin separately, it's the sweetest part.

Delicious kumquats are small enough to pop whole into your mouth... and the Nagami bears these delicious fruits in great abundance. There's no need to worry about harvesting your Nagami Kumquats at the right time. You just pick them off the tree when you're in the mood for a great tasting, healthy snack.

Your whole family will enjoy the great tasting marmalades and desserts you cook up from your citrus tree. It isn't often that you find a fruit tree that can grow in almost any soil, but Nagami Kumquats will reward you well in any condition.

This dwarf citrus does great in a container as well... that way, no matter where you live, you can grow juicy kumquats! The kumquat is so hardy and disease resistant there is no need for chemicals.

You'll always be able to pluck and eat your fruit straight from the tree because it isn't prone to pest or diseases. Mid-summer blooms give you an elegant fragrance that will entice you to step out on your patio every morning.

Your kumquat harvest will be fully ripened and ready to eat in February. You'll be excited to know that the Nagami Kumquat is actually cold hardy to temperatures as low as 20 degrees.

No matter where you live, you can grow these trees as patio plants. Just bring it inside near a sunny window during the winter. They'll mature to a height of just 8 fee tall. If you plant them in the ground, they prefer growing zones 8-11.

Here at Fast Growing Trees we know you will be delighted by the health and vigor of the citrus trees you receive. Our high standards of plant health guarantee your success in growing our plants at home. Now you can add a tropical feel to your patio... no matter where you live!

We bought this kumkuat tree (we bought the largest option sold on this site) a year ago and the first season (Jan to Feb), we got blossoms and then over 100 kumkuats. Since then the tree has continued to grow and I trim off the lower shoots. I think it is a very attractive potted tree (especially with bright kumkuats on it) and love that the kumkuats can be on the tree for a month or two without being picked yet still taste delicious

Beautiful plant added many charm to my living room
I ordered a 2-3 ft kamquat plant on February last year, it's been almost a year since then, I live in New Jersey, hardy zone 6; I left the plant outdoor between late April to early November and move them indoor rest of the months of the year; the tree grew fast, had many fragrant blossoms in summer and produced more than 20 fruits; now the plant is in my living room near a sunny window, it looks so beautiful, too bad I cannot upload a picture to show everybody.

Best of all about this tree (and my other two citrus trees ordered from fast-growing-tree company), they do not attract deer or other animals, nor do they get any disease! so they won't be damaged when they were outdoor, they grow at excellent health, I love, love these trees, added many charming to my living room, better than a Christmas Tree because they are live and the fruits are real.

A thank your to "Fast-Growing Trees"!
We ordered our Nagami Kumquat tree this Spring.The tree, accompanied by planting instructions and an overview of the kumquat variety arrived in Arkansas sooner than promised and in excellent condition. We have a small collection of patio citrus trees and are quite pleased with our newest addition. Within weeks we observed new growth and blossoms. We eagerly await our first crop of kumquats. As a future repeat customer, we would whole-hardheartedly recommend the "Fast-Growing Trees" nursery and site to the public. Thank you again for a job well done!!!!

Awesome tree!
My Nagami Kumquat tree is my favorite of all of my citrus trees, and I have several! I received the tree in excellent condition. It did not have any fruit on it. Shortly after receiving the tree, I pruned back some tall, leggy branches to give it a nice shape. The leaves are beautiful and dark green, and I have gotten a lot of new growth on the tree since receiving it a couple of months ago. I also now have roughly 20 little kumquats growing on the tree with a ton more blooms opening up! I love it, and I highly recommending this beautiful and fun citrus tree!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Nagami Kumquat



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Nagami Kumquat.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Nagami Kumquat gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Nagami Kumquat again after the transplant is complete.

Brought my trees inside for winter, why are leaves are falling off the tree?
Ken T on Dec 3, 2014
Best Answer: Citrus trees and other patio trees can drop their leaves from the temperature shock - that is, going from 55 deg days and 40 deg nights to 70 deg dry furnace air. Acclimate the tree slowly to the change - keep it in the shade for a week then bring it in to a coolish basement with a grow light for a week before bringing it into warmer dry house air. Also must the leaves twice a day if your home is really dry.

Is it normal for my Nagami kumquat to be blooming in late Oct-Nov?
Nick Z on Oct 25, 2015
Best Answer: I have experienced flowers at different times of the year on my kumquat. I haven't figured it out yet. Right now there are small fruits which started in late August, so the flowers were in July, BUT I had the tree outside for the summer. Last year, I kept it inside and the flowers came at a different time.
Good luck!

/will it withstand full sun?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2014
Best Answer: I keep mine out on our deck in spring and summer, it gets mostly sun in the morning and shade in the early afternoon than sun again in the later afternoon. It seems to be doing fine. It has grown faster and fuller than our other trees and has been the only tree so far to produce edible fruit.

Is this a dwarf or full-size tree?
gary c on Jul 7, 2014
Best Answer: Hi Gary, I'm not sure which kumquat you purchased but, kumquats can easily be pruned and maintained. Be sure to cut off a,
Any branched which might appear below the graft as these will have much larger thorns. My qumquat developed a fungus over the winter and I pruned it pretty severely. It has bounced back beautifully. To avoid this issue, do not mulch around it because it should, somewhat, dry out between waterings

I live in Springfield va. I have three plants on my deck outside. What temp should I take my plants inside?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2014
Best Answer: We normally recommend transitioning them slowly when nighttime temperatures reach the low 50s. If your plant is in full sun, place it in the shade for a few days prior to permanently moving it inside.

I live in Massachusetts, about 20 miles north of Boston; I grew a Kumquat tree from seed from our neighbor's garden in FL. How can I help it survive up here in MA?
carol s on Jun 23, 2014
Best Answer: I think that as long as you bring it inside when the temperature drops below 25 F in a place with good light, you should be good. Make sure if you add soil to the pot that it is the acidity is correct (or go to Home Depot and buy a bag that says it is for citrus plants).

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
