Kumquat - Nagami
A Small Fruit with Big Flavor
The Nagami Kumquat is a small, fruit-bearing evergreen tree. Plant one near your house so you don’t miss a moment of its lovely flowers or striking fruit. They also do well as a container planting so they can easily be moved indoors in inclement weather.
Your Nagami Kumquat is perhaps the most popular Kumquat variety grown in the United States, and its outstanding feature is of course the fruit itself. There’s nothing that tastes quite like it. The oval, orange-colored fruit is about an inch in diameter and commonly eaten whole.
Biting into the Kumquat, the sweet citrus flavor of the peel is sure to delight your senses, but is nothing compared to the tart explosion of flavor that follows when your taste buds encounter the juicy interior. Candied, cooked, canned or eaten whole, Kumquats are a tasty, not-to-be-missed treat in any form!
Your Nagami Kumquat is a dwarf, growing to about 10 feet tall with a shrub-like appearance but quite similar to an orange tree. This Nagami is somewhat frost hardy, able to survive some cold temperatures for short periods of time.
The 5-peteled, white flowers that appear in the spring have a rich, waxy appearance and are delightfully fragrant. You can depend on their charming allure to draw pollinators to your yard. The 3-inch, deep green oval leaves provide a vibrant, healthy appearance to your tree year-round, even when not in bloom or fruit.
Kumquates are low in calories but a rich source of anti-oxidants, minerals, vitamins and fiber. Growing your own Kumquat, especially on a plant that is both adaptable and lovely, is an obvious choice over the usual fruit-bearing trees commonly available for your yard.
