The most mature Kumquat (Citrus japonica 'Nagami') we sell, these nice, strong 5 year old trees will produce a good crop of orange Kumquats each year. The fruits take some time to ripen and should be eaten whole with peel intact to enjoy their sweet distinctive flavour. Delicious eaten straight off the tree for a hit of vitamin C.
Current Description
We've some really super large kumquat this week with a neat head of foliage. After a busy Mother's day week, only a couple have lots of orange fruit, and so you're welcome to contact us if you'd like us to check on availability for you. The other plants are still looking fab, and will flower and fruit later this year. Good to know: Although we carefully wrap and pack our plants to protect them, it is not unusual for the odd fruit to be dislodged during transit, especially when they are so ripe like this. The good news is that you can use them immediately.

A very healthy plant with lots of fruit on it. My nephew and his wife loved their Christmas present and are looking forward to eating the fruit. I would certainly recommend Plants4present and will be using them again.

Looking after your Kumquat

This citrus tree has both tasty fruit and fragrant flowers – sometimes both at once. It is a kumquat (Citrus japonica) and it bears sweet scented white flowers and distinctive orange fruit. It can bring pleasure for years, with the right care.

This plant loves light and warmth even more than other citrus varieties. Near a window in a bright cool room or conservatory is best. Try to keep your plant away from any radiators or cold draughts which may shock your plant. A cool room is fine, but a draughty porch or a frosty conservatory is not. If your plant gets below 5ºC it will suffer.

Water thoroughly from the top when the soil starts to look dry and let the excess water drain away. You might find it needs watering almost every day when it is hot in the summer but as little as once a fortnight in winter. It will depend on the weather and how warm your room is. The roots should not stand in water. The best way to judge whether your plant needs watering is to get used to the right weight for the watered pot.

In the heat of summer your plant will appreciate a holiday. Put it outside on a sheltered patio and it will enjoy the fresh air. Bring it back inside when there is a nip in the evening air. Don’t worry if the soil feels dry on top - the most common cause of problems is watering too frequently in the winter months when the plant is resting.

The fruit and the peel of this exotic fruit are both edible raw, the more sunlight they receive the sweeter they will grow. The oval orange fruit are great on their own, in drinks or in desserts.

Problem solving

Sudden changes in the environment, under or over watering can all cause leaf drop however with a return to regular watering and a stable temperature they will usually recover well.

Mouldy fruit or flowers is a sign that your plant is either overwatered or in too damp a spot, try a sunnier position and leaving longer between watering.
