Why Nagami Kumquat Trees?

With our Nagami Kumquat Tree, you'll have your own sweet, juicy kumquats from home. Especially since the Nagami couldn't be simpler to grow because it's drought-tolerant, and pest and disease resistant.

Even better? Instead of the pulp, the sweetest part of this citrus fruit is actually the peel. The Nagami offers a distinctive taste and texture that makes delicious marmalades, preserves, and dried fruits. In fact, it's the only citrus fruit that can be entirely eaten, skin and all.

Plus, it's carefree. 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, and it's so hardy and disease resistant, you won't need chemicals. You'll always be able to pluck and eat your fruit straight from the tree because it isn't prone to pests or diseases.

Pollination Info

Nagami Kumquat Tree Pollination

Nagami Kumquat Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Nagami Kumquat 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, around 6 to 8 hours per day is ideal. They can tolerate some shade but thrive in full sun. 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.

When you're ready to plant, ensure you have well-drained soil and dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system. Place the tree in the hole and backfill. 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.

If you're planting in a container, just select a container that's twice the width of your plant's shipped container.

2. 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 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again.

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 drier at that depth. When you're watering, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your Kumquat Tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus-specific fertilizer, like the one included in our Citrus Care Kit, once every six weeks. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2 to 3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit and has got a few years on it, you can skip the cold season fertilization. Follow the application instructions on the bag.

4. 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. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree. Remove suckers as they form/grow from the base. Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted Kumquat.

5. Pollination: Our trees are self-fertile, but for indoor trees, you can pollinate by hand, taking a small, dry, fine-tipped paintbrush and sticking 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 off naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

FAQs

How long does it take for a kumquat tree to bear fruit?

On average, a kumquat will take around 2-3 years to flower and produce fruit. However, this may vary depending on growing conditions. With grafted plants, you can expect fruit sooner than you would with a seed-grown plant.

How big can a kumquat tree get?

Kumquat trees get to be around 8-10 ft. tall on average, but can be smaller depending on how they’re pruned and whether they’re container planted.

What are the benefits of eating kumquats?

Kumquats are just as nutritious as they are delicious! Like other citrus, they’re a good source of Vitamin C and a healthy snack to enjoy.

Love my two Nagami Kumquat trees!

The trees were packed very well and arrived in great shape. I transplanted them into pots for my sunroom. They already had blossoms when they arrived and after a month there are small green kumquats on both trees.

Amazing Plant

This little guy (about 1’ tall) showed up with several little kumquats already growing on them! There were also multiple buds which have since blossomed with pretty white flowers. I’ve been very pleased with our purchase!

Kumquat great citrus tree for home

I ordered a couple of kumquat trees about 10 years ago and planted them in large pots (5 gallon and 15 gallon) they grew outside all warm months (northern Kentucky) brought them inside in the winter to my mostly unheated, sometimes warm office. Most years I would get lovely blossoms with sweet smell followed by delicious fruit over an extended time period. This past spring I had the largest harvest from the trees, over 4 gallons of fruit. I made kumquat strawberry marmalade, the best I ever had. The trees are not fussy and very forgiving. I love them. My largest tree in the 15 gal container died right after my big harvest this year, I think I over watered it and it had wet feet too long(maybe). I am going to order another tree next spring.
