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.

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.

Can't Believe How Gorgeous This Little Tree Is!
I already have a very healthy Meyer Lemon and an extremely prolific Limequat that I bought from Fast Growing Trees about a year and a half ago, but I desperately wanted a Kumquat tree, too! They seemed to never be in stock, unfortunately. Right before the 4th of July long weekend (around the 26th) the 1 - 2' trees were in stock and I snatched one up! I got a shipping notice the next day and expected to receive the tree on the 29th, per the shipping notice. However, the tree did not end up shipping (for whatever reason) and didn't end up shipping until the 29th, which meant that it would be in transit from California through Arizona and Texas to eventually Indiana over the long holiday. SEVEN DAYS with 98-104 degree temps! I 100% expected to receive a box with a dead stick and brown, crispy leaves in it. Instead, I opened the box and saw this beautiful, perfectly green, little tree looking as though I had just brought it home from the local nursery! It has a small green fruit on it already and today it popped out a blossom. I'm giving it a couple of days on the enclosed porch to rest from the transport and then will be repotting and putting it with its citrus family. I couldn't be happier with my purchase(s) and will always recommend Fast Growing Trees!
Review of the Nagami kumquat
So far so go. It’s still alive and well. The only surprise is I thought it’s smaller then I expected.
The tree was very healthy shape . I was hoping to have my tree blooming this year
Happy Healthy Little Tree
Was worried that this tree would come in half dead as it was coming from Calli to NJ and took about 5 days. It arrived in superb condition. A little on the small side but it had one little fruit. Was relieved but also a little disappointed. Perhaps my expectations were set a little too high based on the pictures. It's been potted and I cant wait for it to grow into an amazing tree. Overall I'm pretty satisfied. Would shop with them again.
