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.
