I like how well the fruit keeps on this tree. I could have harvested all the fruit at once in June. Instead, I alternate between this and my other kumquat and munch on a fruit every other day. 

Fruiting Months May, June, July, August, September

Growing: In a Pot

Fruit Harvest: 30 Fruit Per Year

Kumquat - Meiwa (Grafted) 10/10

Emma1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3023 days 21hrs

Comments: -

I love eating these sweet-sour lemonly citrus straight- especially for their sweet rind. Out of the fruit trees I have planted these were the first to have fruit, and from family I know they are a very productive plant. Unfortunately the possum wanted to try too and climbed up the stalk of one yound bush, causing it to snap in half. It seems to be still surving by a sliver of bark, and I think it has a new bud coming from above the graft mark so that is good news.

Kumquat - Meiwa (Grafted) 9/10

Pademelon1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1224 days 14hrs

Comments: - I think it's a Meiwa, but It could be a calamondin (or something else completely). I'm only going off the round shape of the fruit. Gets attacked by caterpillers every season, which does a bit of damage. Plenty of flowers and small green fruit, but most are eaten by birds or blown off (the wind really is this plant's nemesis) leaving a harvest of generally between 15-60 fruit. fruit are decent size, varying between slightly smaller than a Nagami to double/triple the size. the rind/pith is quite bitter, but the fruits are great in marmalade or stored in alcohol. They do contain viable seeds, and they ripen throughout the year (which is strange because they only flower once a season). I rarely trim the plant, but when I do, it quickly regrows to its former size where it then stays.
