Citrus Patio Tree, Kumquat 5"
Grow your own fruit!
This 5" Kumquat Patio Tree is an easy way to grow your own fruit at home.
Kumquats are some of the easiest fruit trees to grow. They are beautiful, with dark, glossy green leaves and bright orange fruit which is both gorgeous and tasty. When ripe, kumquats have a sweet, edible skin and a sour fruit inside. They can be eaten whole, made into marmalade, or used in various dishes.
Care: Kumquat trees need full sun. They do best with at least six hours of sunlight a day. The goal is to keep the soil moist but not wet. Stick your finger into the soil, at least up to the second knuckle. If you feel dampness at your fingertip, wait to water. If it feels dry, water your plant until you see it run out of the bottom of the pot.
