Loads of sweet, juicy kumquats at home! 

• Perfect fruit-picking height

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.

It's Easy to Plant 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.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

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

I live in Pa. and I received my kumquat tree 5-15-14. It actually arrived bigger and better than I had expected. This is just one of several fruit plants that I had ordered and will definitely be ordering from here for now on.

My family purchased our Kumquat tree in Nov. of 2012 and it is still doing well a year later. It arrived beautifully with three tiny fruits. We replanted the tree in a slightly larger pot with a well draining soil. The tree spent the winter next to our one south facing window which is too close to our radiator. But, through the tree lost leaves, it continued to grow and put on new leaves. It flowered and prodcued many tiny fruits, then dropped all but four and the three that were on the tree when it arrived. In the summer we put the tree on our Southfacing patio and it thrived, got larger, flowered and fruited - there are now too many tiny fruits to count. The 3 original kumquats ripened and they were the sweetest, tartest, most perfect kumquats we ever had. We brought it back in the house at the begining of October and it seems to be doing well. The four fruits from the first flowering are getting larger and the fruits that it put on during the summer are still growing (slowly - but that is how they are supposed to grow). Some things we do to keep it healthy inlude - not letting it sit in water, fertilize with an organic citrus fertilizer once a month, shine a grow light on it for 8-10 hours a day (cheap one purchased for less than $20 at Lows). So, we haven't had an amazing harvest - only three fruits eaten so far but, we love the tree and are very happy with the way it is growing. If the fruit that are currently on the tree reach maturity then we will have quite the bounty. (As a side note, we live in a very small apartment in Chicago, Il and are not great gardeners.

when do kumquat trees begin bearing fruit?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
Best Answer: This is the second year for our very healthy-looking kumquat tree but it has yet to bear any fruit. Had very few blossoms (compared to our key lime tree) both years. Still hopeful :)

Does this tree have fruit on it ?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2014
Best Answer: Mine came with one ripening kumquat, and the next year i had about 20. Mine grows inside and would probably do better outside in the summer. Yummy and fun for grandkids to pick and eat.

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

/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.

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 my 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.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

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.
