Kumquat (Citrus japonica)

What is that:
Slow growing evergreen shrub or wood with fragrant white flowers in spring and summer and small orange fruits in summer and autumn.
It grows in height from 2.5 m to 4 m and in width from 1.5 m to 2.5 m.
Grow outdoors in a moist but well-drained soil in a sheltered, frost-free area in full sun. Use a fertilizer designed for citrus trees thereafter.
As part of your kumquat tree care, you should keep the soil moist around young trees, but not wet or soggy. Once the tree is established water during dry spells.
Don't require pruning except to remove suckers that drain the tree's resources. If you want to prune to shape the tree do so after you harvest the fruit but before the flowers bloom in spring.
Plant it in the south-facing positions in the gardens, because it takes full sun. Decorative and does not require a huge space, while the fruits are consumed with goals and are extremely rich in vitamins and minerals..
