The most cold-hardy Citrus tree you can buy! Marumi Kumquat (Fortunella japonica 'Marumi') is a breeding breakthrough and a boon for gardeners, especially those in colder northern climates
If you can say the word 'Kumquat' and not instantly have your mouth start watering, then you've never tasted these little sour/sweet powerbombs. Kumquats are small l- no bigger than a golf ball, often as small as a half dollar - but they pack a BIG citrus taste. You usually pop the whole thing in your mouth and eat it peel and all. Sweet peel and tart pulp, combine as you chew for a unique flavor explosion.
Marumi Kumquat has small leaves and round fruit with thin, sweet skin that is edible. No need to peel. These trees do great in pots by a sunny window so that you can pick a few Kumquats to snack on at any time. They start producing in late fall and by Christmas, you can have boughs of greenery with natural orange 'ornaments'.
Beautiful ornamentals, Marumi Kumquats are diminutive trees that tuck into any sized yard, orchard or even porch and balcony! Even those without any space outside can enjoy them in their homes as tropical houseplants. Any sunny location will provide you with a beautiful tree and lots of fruit!
Plant in the ground as a beautiful specimen tree and exotic addition to your backyard seating areas! Plant a pair by your front door for a sweet welcome and unique conversation piece! Easy care trees like these always make incredible gifts too!
#ProPlantTips for Care:
Of all Citrus - Marumi Kumquats survive the lowest temperatures. They often don't show any damage even when the temps get down to 10 degrees. At 0-degrees they will lose their leaves, but by spring, the leaves will grow back! This winter dormancy is pretty remarkable and unheard of in other citrus trees.
Nature Hills prides itself on quality trees, pruning for maximum branching and ensuring that each tree is well-rooted. We know that you won't be disappointed with the Marumi Kumquat tree. Order one today!
