Fruit with the sweetness of limes and zest of citrus

The Limequat is exactly how it sounds, a natural cross between a Key Lime and a Kumquat. They are small yellow-green oblong fruit about the size of kumquats that you can snack on without the time consuming hassle of peeling them. 

When eaten fresh Limequats are an extremely satisfying snack with a chewy rind, wet citrus flesh and an abundance of juice. They have the sweet flavors of limes and oranges with a tart aftertaste. Their unique flavor is perfect for cooking with, as well as adding to drinks to give your favorite recipes some extra zest.

Limequat trees are one of the most highly recommended houseplants because they love growing in containers indoors. They’ll brighten any room with their glossy green leaves and fragrant white flowers that turn into green fruits before ripening to a vivid shade of yellow. 

During the warmer months you can place your Limequat tree out on the deck or patio for a decorative ornamental tree. They can be placed in corners as accent pieces or on tabletops to be the center of attention.  

Your family and friends will love hanging out around your unique Limequat trees because they naturally give off a sweet citrus fragrance, especially when in bloom. They’re also entraining to watch because they always seem to be opening new blooms or producing more fruit. Plus they can pick fruit right off the tree for snacking or to garnish their drinks.

Limequats are a favorite fruit to grow among gardeners of all levels from beginners to advanced, because they are drought tolerant, heat resistant and even survive in low light. Best of all, they require very little attention in order to bloom and produce tons of fruit. 

Limequat Citrus Tree Pollination

Limequat Citrus Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Limequat Citrus Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Limequat Citrus Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Limequat Citrus Tree.

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Limequat Citrus Tree 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 Limequat Citrus Tree again after the transplant is complete.
