Meiwa Kumquats are one of the most frost tolerant citrus trees around. This species produces exceptionally sweet fruits that have a more rounded shape than most Kumquats. Kumquat trees are generally grown for their ornamental value as well as their charming and tasty little fruits. The fruit can be eaten fresh, including the skin which is often the sweetest part. Slice them to add to lettuce or fruit salads, for flavoring beverages, or use to make jams and jellies.
Utilize citrus trees in the landscape just like any ornamental tree. Give enough space that light is available from all sides, away from the shade of larger trees or buildings. A great plant for large patio containers where the fragrant flowers can be enjoyed and the fruit easily picked. Can also be grown indoors if space and ample sunlight can be provided.
