Loads of sweet, juicy kumquats at home!

- Perfect fruit-picking height

Instead of the pulp, the sweetest part of this citrus fruit is actually the peel.

Nagami Kumquats make delicious marmalades, preserves, and dried fruits.

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.

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 powerful 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.

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.

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!!!!

pretty, but buggy
it was an indoor plan, and gnats hatched a few days after it arrived and couldn't get rid of them. naturally, I didn't want to use any chemicals, so after trying a few natural methods including drying it out, I ended up having to discard the plant.

Planting & Care



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


Nagami Kumquat Planting Diretions

The Nagami Kumquat (Fortunella margarita) is a fantastic little semi-dwarf with fruit that you can pick right off the tree and eat. The kumquat is a unique kind of citrus that doesn’t need any peeling to enjoy, just eat the whole thing, skin and all! The kumquat is a drought tolerant, pest resistant and fairly easy to grow tree. They love full sun and are commonly found outside in USDA growing zones 8-11 but can be successfully grown in a container and brought indoors for the colder seasons. They aren’t extremely fast growers but will top out at 8 feet tall and about 6 feet wide at their full maturity. The blooms will throw off a heavenly aroma that will be a joy to have in, and outside of your home.

Seasonal Information: Kumquat trees will do best in warmer climates as it is classified as a tropical plant. Zones 8 to 11 are ideal for outdoor planting. However, if you do experience cold winters, plant your Kumquat tree in a container and bring it inside for the fall and winter seasons. We recommend planting in Spring through Fall for outdoors since they are sensitive to colder temperatures.

Selecting a location: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, 6-8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade, but thrive in full sun. You'll want to ensure trees are spaced 8-10 feet apart if planting more than one. These trees also do better in areas with high humidity so you may also need to create humidity for your tree by misting the leaves daily with water. Potted plants do enjoy a daily misting for humidity but placing a tray with rocks filled with water under the plant will feed humidity to the tree as the water evaporates.

Planting Directions (in Ground): If you are located in zones 8-11 and your winter temperatures stay consistently warm, your Kumquat will do well being planting outside in the ground. Be sure the area has well draining soil.
1) Dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system.
2) Place the tree in the hole and back fill it with your sandy, well-draining, acidic soil. If you have clay soil, try amending it with sand, stone, perlite or fine potting soil.
3) Tamp the soil down as you backfill the hole to cut back on any pockets from forming.
4) After planting, be sure to give your Kumquat tree a deep watering for about 5 minutes. Mulching around the tree will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the colder winter months as well.

Planting Instructions (potted): If your winter temperatures are consistently below 40 degrees, plant your tree in a container that can easily be brought outside in the summer months and inside in the winter. A planter with built-in casters is a good choice so it can easily be moved. Choose a pot slightly larger than what it was shipped in that has plenty of holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Be sure to plant in well-draining potting soil preferably recommended for acid loving citrus plants.

1) Fill your pot halfway with soil. Remove the tree from it's original pot and gently place it in the potting soil.
2) Fill in around the tree with the remainder of the potting soil but be sure not to cover the grafted area of the tree. Leave about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.
3) Lightly pack down the soil. Immediately after planting, give your tree a deep watering until it flows from the holes in the bottom of the pot.
4) Place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight. Supplement with a grow light if it will not receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day. You may also need to create humidity for your tree by placing the pot on a saucer of pebbles or misting the leaves daily with water.

Watering: Kumquats do not like wet feet. Be sure to give your tree a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2-3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Yellowing and droopy leaves is a common sign of overwatering while brown, dry leaves are a sign of under watering. Mulching can help retain the soil moisture and also combat competing grasses/weeds.

For potted Kumquats, stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels more dry at that depth. When ready to water, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Pollination assistance: You can pollinate your indoor trees by hand since most people do not keep a healthy bee population within their home. Simply take a small, dry, fine tipped paint brush and stick it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated. Do this once daily and don’t wash the paintbrush until after the blooms have been pollinated. The bloom will fall of naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

Fertilization: Feed your Kumquat tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer once every six weeks. Espoma Citrus Tone is highly recommended but any organic fertilizer specifically for citrus should suffice. This will help keep your tree on a healthy growth cycle but also replenish the nutrients in the soil. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2-3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit and has got a few years on it, you can skip the cold season fertilization. The same fertilizing regimen should be followed for potted Kumquat trees as well. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.

Pruning: Pruning can be done at any time of the year for in ground planted Kumquats except in the winter. Make 45-degree angle cuts to remove dead or crossing limbs and also to thin out the tree to allow more light to flow between the branches. “Leggy” looking branches may indicate that there is not enough light getting to the tree’s interior. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree. Remove suckers as they form/grow from the base as they will steal away nutrients from the primary trunk of the tree. Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted Kumquat.

My dad was searching for this tree on my last visit to see him. His effort was fruitless. I told him about my success with fast growing trees, but I knew he probably wouldn't order, so I did. I know he'll enjoy these pretty little fruits of the kumquat as much as we did when I was little.

Because I remember loving kumquats when I visited Florida many years ago as a little boy.

Can it grow indoors in hesperia ca 92345?
Lisa V on Jan 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Looking at where Hesperia is, I would think you could leave a Nagami Kumquat outdoors most of the year.
