The Sweetness of Limes and Zest of Citrus

Why Limequat Citrus Trees?

The Limequat Citrus Tree is bred for the best balance: A natural cross between a Key Lime and a Kumquat. Limequats are small yellow-green fruit about the size of kumquats, which you can snack on without the time-consuming hassle of peeling.

Plus, 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.

And Limequat Trees are one of the most highly recommended house plants because they love growing in containers indoors. During the warmer months you can place your Limequat tree out on the deck or patio for a decorative ornamental tree. They can also be placed in corners as accent pieces or on tabletops to be the center of attention.

Pollination Info

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

1. Planting: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, 6 to 8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade but thrive in full sun.

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.

If your winter temperatures are consistently below 40 degrees, plant your tree in a container. 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.

Place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight. 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.

2. Watering: After watering once or twice weekly, allow the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again.

For potted Limequats, stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels drier at that depth.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your Limequat Tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus-specific fertilizer, such as the one included in our Citrus Care Kit, once every six weeks. During the fall and winter seasons, ease back to fertilizing once every 2 to 3 months. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.

4. Pruning: 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 Limequat.

5. Pollination: Our trees are self-fertile but can be pollinated by hand when you're growing indoors. Simply take a small, dry, fine-tipped paintbrush and stick it into the center of each bloom on your Limequat. 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 on your tree.

I'm not sure it is going to make it

it has lost mamy of its leaves but shows signs of sprouts so I have hope it was just the shock of planting. We shall see.

Too early to tell, but so far so good

I've only had the tree about 3 weeks so it's too early to tell how it will do, but it arrived well packaged with no visible damage. I potted it upon arrival. I noticed a bit of new growth so I'm guessing it's settling in just fine. I look forward to watching it grow and hopefully branch out and bear fruit!

Very Pleased

Our tree arrived looking very healthy. We planted it the same day and in less than one week the tree was showing new growth. It’s small, but mighty and we are enjoying watching it prosper!
