Kumquat (Fortunella japonica syn. Citrus japonica), sometimes spelled cumquat or comquot, is a small citrus fruit that grows in climates too cool for other citrus plants. 

They are some of the easiest fruit trees to grow in garden pots.

When ripe, kumquat fruit has a sweet, edible skin with slightly sour meat inside. Kumquat trees are considered to be heavy fruiters, with some varieties flowering and producing fruit twice per year.

Plant measures 50cm, ceramic pot 16cm.

PLANT CARE

Light: Bright direct sunlight. Place your Kumquat tree in the brightest window of your house and make sure your plant is getting at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.

Water: Proper watering is one of the keys to growing any citrus plant, but particularly those grown in pots. The aim is to keep the soil moist but not wet. Before watering, stick your finger or a chopstick into the soil. If the top 2" doesn't show dampness, then you water it as usual.
