A Juicy Patio Plant for Any Home

Enjoy sweet, juicy kumquats from home with our Nagami Kumquat Tree! The Nagami is one of the easiest kumquat trees to grow because it's drought-tolerant and resistant to pests and disease!

Unlike other citrus fruit, the Nagami's peel is super sweet. This citrus offers a distinctive taste and texture that makes delicious marmalades, preserves, and dried fruit snacks. In fact, it's the only citrus that can be entirely eaten—skin and all.

This citrus is also low maintenance. You won't often find a fruit tree that can grow in almost any soil, but Nagami Kumquats will reward you well in most growing conditions! This dwarf citrus does great in a container, too! Hardy and disease resistant, the Nagami won't need chemicals to protect the fruit. Pick it straight from the branch, and voila!

Bring tropical sweetness to your Georgia home. Get your own Nagami Kumquat Tree today!

NOTE: This product is specific to Georgia. Find Nagami Kumquat Trees available in other states.

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.
