The Meiwa Kumquat is the “sweetest” sour kumquat you can grow. You eat these beautiful small fruit whole – rind, seeds and all – in one or two bites. The rind has an extraordinary spicy/sweet taste that is almost addicting once you bite into it.
Very hardy for a citrus fruit, these trees are stars in the landscape well out of the normal range of your typical citrus growing regions. They handle fry-pan hot summers and an occasional deep-freeze (though snow is not their friend.) They can easily be wintered indoors in large pots by a sunny window and their fruit ripens right around Thanksgiving, making them stars inside your home as well.
A mature tree can have THOUSANDS of the tiny fruit ripening in the limbs in late fall. It’s an astonishing sight. You will have bushels of the fruit to keep for your kitchen, sell at the local farmer’s market and give away as presents. A big bowl of kumquats brings instant nostalgia and beautiful color to a holiday table.
