Description:

At Gonzalez Nurseries, we invite you to discover the charm of the Kumquat or Citrus x fortunella, an evergreen tree belonging to the Rutaceae family. This tree is highly decorative, as its fruits linger on the plant for extended periods, and its growth is slow.

Characteristics:

The Kumquat produces small, oval-shaped, orange-colored fruits, measuring approximately 2-4 cm. It is edible, with the peel being the sweetest part of the fruit. This tree requires direct sunlight to thrive and a rich, well-drained soil for optimal development.

Care:

At Gonzalez Nurseries, we recommend pruning Kumquats once they have borne fruit and before they bloom again. During this pruning, we remove weak, broken, or damaged branches, as well as those that obstruct airflow in the tree. It's also important to conduct formative pruning to maintain the tree's beautiful shape. The use of a special citrus fertilizer is recommended to promote healthy growth.

Disease Prevention:

Kumquats can be susceptible to attacks by aphids, insects, and fungi, especially in the roots if the soil doesn't drain properly and water stagnates. Ensuring good drainage is essential to prevent diseases and maintain the tree's health.

Discover the beauty and flavor of the Kumquat at Gonzalez Nurseries, where we offer the best advice and care for cultivating this fascinating citrus species.
