KUMQUAT - VARIEGATED

Variegated KumquatBy James Steakley CC BY-SA 3.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Citrus japonica
Description

A highly ornamental kumquat with variegated foliage. Well suited as a pot specimen. Also known as Calamondin it has acid fruit that is most commonly grown in the Philippine Islands although it is probably of Chinese origin. It is believed to be a natural hybrid, with kumquat in the parentage. In the Philippines it is sometimes called calamonding or calamansi. Here in the United States it is primarily planted as an ornamental, either growing in the ground or in a container. Calamondin is cold-resistant. The tree form is upright and columnar, and the leaves are small and dense giving the tree a fine textural appearance. The fruits are very small, round, and orange at full maturity. The orange flesh is acidic, juicy, and contains a few seeds. Calamondin trees flower and set fruit intermittently throughout the year, adding to the decorative appeal of these trees.

Other Names: cumquat, calamondin, Citrus

Question & Answer

How old is the plant and when they are ready to have fruits? From:

The Kumquat in the 165mm pot is perhaps 1-2 years old but because it is grafted the tree will behave like a 5+ year old tree. This is one of the benefits of buying a grafted tree. It could fruit in it's first year but we recommend that you remove all the flowers and fruit from your young grafted tree for the first two years to allow your tree to establish into a strong healthy plant before letting the fruit mature as otherwise it will put all its energy into the fruit. You want your young tree to put its energy into roots and shoots for the first two years.

Affected a lot by scale. Looks pretty but has extremely tart fruit. I prefer other varieties like Nagami to eat. I think I will pull it out and try another type.
