Description

Native to China, Oval Kumquat (Fortunella margarita) with its small oval-shaped fruits is without doubt the most common species of kumquat. Its characteristic features: small, compact and intensely branched shrubs with tapered, dark green, glossy leaves. It produces many small (1-1.5 cm), white, intensely fragrant flowers. The fruits are egg- to pear-shaped, 3-4 cm long, 1.5-2.5 cm thick and have a weight of 20-30g. The peel has a light to intense orange color. They are eaten in their entirety, with their sweet peel and sour fruit pulp. The ripening of fruits continues throughout the winter so that for a classically early harvest in late winter Kumquats require a bright, not too cold winter quarter. Otherwise, the harvest will shift to spring or early summer. Oval Kumquat is quite hardy and can remain outdoors for a long time, but should be brought under glass during the winter.
