When I ask people if they would like a Kumquat they look at me as if I have said something rude! A what? And I wonder why it is that the Kumquat has never gone mainstream? The most likely explanation is that for some mysterious reason, the rind is the sweet and tasty bit and the juicy fruit is sour! There is probably a metaphor somewhere there? Most often, the Kumquat is grown for its ornamental value. The small oval citrus fruits resemble miniature oranges and look wonderful hanging from the stems between the dark leathery foliage of the tree. They look great as standards and they produce seasonal periods of heady blossom fragrance, as do all members of the citrus family.

Large Round Kumquat. A hybrid variety with thick, rigid, dark green foliage and fragrant, white flowers in spring. The rounded fruit are of good quality and the whole fruit can be eaten as the peel is quite sweet with just a hint of acid. The flesh is also quite sweet with few seeds. Evergreen.

Plant in a sunny, well drained spot in fertile soil. Best protected from harsh frost when young. Happy growing in a container as long as you remember to feed and water regularly. The fruit hold well on the plant and are highly ornamental.
