Makes a really nice lolly when boiled in sugar like a toffee (cut in half lengthways first) | Joan Chan - Wamuran, QLD 08-Nov-2006

Kumquat - Nagami

Our small tree is not even a meter tall but is smothered in fruit,delicious to eat whole with its enticing sweet/tart flavour. Going to make some into marmalade with an additional lemon or two to bulk it out. | Julia Brougham - Mayfield West, NSW 30-Jun-2015

September 2014: Planted June 2014.  Very unassuming plant. Grows slowly but consistently.  Quality potting mix, compost and blood & bone used.

November 2014:  This really is a very ornamental plant and a it is one of my favourite looking citrus.  This has recently undergone some extensive new growth and is looking really healthy.  It has started to flower as well.  It has started slowly but kicked along impressively.

May 2015: This is a lovely plant and the first of my citrus to start producing fruit.  It was purchased from Daley's and was one of the larger specimens that I have received from the nursery (received at least a dozen from them).  It has always looked like a lovely plant and I'm keen to tast the fruit.  Of the citrus I have it also tends to have growth below the graft more often than others.  It is slow growing and smaller than many of the other plants I have but ornamental none-the-less.

Growing beautifully, I have my first crop of kumquats this year and I can't wait for the sensational sweet and lively sour little fruits - yummy.  A gorgeous tree which is highly ornamental - the main problem I have is that it looks so beautiful in fruit I am reluctant to strip the tree of its bright orange fruit.

Received as a gift in Nov 2005. Made Liquer in 2007, marmalade in 2008 but vinegar flies ruined the fruit in 2009. 2010 irregular fruit ripening and a lot of fruit drop. So I gave it a major prune, reshape before spring. For Liquer I infuse the fruit in vodka (there are other recipes that use higher % alcohol!) which I try to leave for over 3 months. I've experimented with both cut fruit and whole, results to be tasted soon. I squeeze the juice out of the fruit and filter it through some cloth. I then make up a 50-50 sugar and water syrup (heat till disolves). If I have 1L of infused vodka, I add about 330mL syrup (when cool). A week or more after bottling (sterilize first) it tastes great cold.

Growing: In a Pot

Question:

Dropping a lot of near ripe fruit in June. Any tips to try and manage harvest time?

Fruit remaining on trees hinders bud developemnt, so pull off when ready ie as they sweeten up or the will regreen and stop the next lot of fruit buds being initiated.
Brad1 says... [2931 days 19hrs ago]
thanks jimmy - they never reverted back to green. They were green for most of winter and turned orange early spring. I don't think thats normal. Maybe too little sunlight in autumn? Alternatively, maybe it flowered late or lost early flowers to a hotspell? I'm keeping up the water with flowers on now and will move in autumn if needed, so hopefully this time will be ok.

09/11/10 - This plant wasn't as vigorous as the other two kumquats, Meiwa and Calomondin, at the time of purchase. Added to that, it's leaves are constantly being devoured by the snails that there are hardly any leaves left on the tree. Not a good sign indeed.

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 382 days 1hrs

I had always thought that the only thing Kumquats were good for was the making of marmalade. Until, until that is when I recently had one to eat. The initial reation was the reaction to the sourness of the juice, but then as I started to chew on the skin I realised just  how sweet it was.

I was an immediate convert!

I am growing this in a pot and it has suffered some fruit drop in the hot dry weather we are having.at the moment. I am going to have to get a good layer of mulch on it.

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.
