Fortunella margarita, Nagami Kumquat is one of the most valuable citrus varieties
More than any other Citrus, Kumquat is of high ornamental value. The fruits are tasty and are consumed with the peel. They can hang on the tree for several months ripening, so most people usually prefer to keep them as ornamental. As with all other Citrus plants, Kumquat is susceptible to scales and spider mites and needs to be sprayed twice a year.
In winter it will need a cool place with temperatures 0-10 degrees Celsius. If the temperature is higher, the leaves usually fall off. In summer it needs to be outside and abundantly watered.
