Not Your Typical Kumquat!

If your jaw doesn’t tighten when you think of a sour kumquat, then you’ve probably never had a kumquat. They can be really tart! But the Centennial Variegated Kumquat isn’t like any of the others. This one is unique in looks as well as taste.

To begin with, it tastes like a cross between a kumquat and a mandarin orange - sweet and tangy, not sour like you’d expect.

Another way this beautiful tree stands out is the coloration. The leaves are a variegated yellow and green stripe, which is unusual for citrus. The fruit themselves are also striped – yellow with green stripes while they are growing turning to orange with red stripes when they mature.

Truly a strikingly beautiful fruit. Even though it flowers in fall and the fruits ripen in late winter, it can hold its fruit for months at a time so that there appear to be fruits and flowers on the tree year round in the right climates.

If you don’t live in the right climate though, don’t fret. This tree grows great in a pot by a sunny window, giving you that citrus tree scent year round.

Nature Hills only sells trees that are a minimum three years old. Because of this they have extensive branching and some of the largest root systems available. We take pride in delivering you the highest quality citrus trees with healthy roots and full, well-established stems and foliage. Order yours today!
