Tropical Vacation On A Tree!

It's like a thatched-roof beach bar on a tree! The Eustis Limequat is a cross between two classic tropical citrus fruits - a Key Lime and a Marumi Kumquat. Pick one of these off your own tree to add punch to any of your tropical drinks or as a squeeze in your sparkling water. One taste and you're instantly on vacation.

First developed in Florida in 1909, the Eustis Limequat is the most common of the Limequats and are hardy plants, having stood the test of time. Combining the best of both parents, this fruit gives you the great juicy taste of the Key Lime and the thin, edible skin of the Kumquat. Just pick, wash, slice and eat!

These trees are hardy outdoors and in if you live in a Citrus-friendly climate this tree requires very little care for great returns. If you live in a colder climate, this tree makes a perfect houseplant, thriving in a pot in a sunny window or on a summer patio.

Eustis will flower from June to September and bear fruit to pick by Thanksgiving.

Our 3-year old trees arrive well-branched and thickly rooted, ready for planting in your favorite container, or in your garden if you live where Citrus thrives outdoors. Don't wait. Order this delicious tropical fruit for your home today!

  • Time-Tested Classic
  • Eat It Peel & All!
  • Exceptional In Containers
