Kumquats (the sweet ones).

Longboat Key, FL

It has been a terrible year for oranges and grapefruits -- but this is the second crop on "Old Faithful."

The bananas are hanging in, O.K.

But the clump of fruit is having a difficult time turning yellow.

Hope it makes it.

My Kumquat is just now blooming - can't wait for the delicious fruit!

I think that severe pruning helps.

This is the second big crop -- and there are still some new blossoms peeking out.

They are delicious -- too.

Be well

kumquats are hardier than oranges and lots of other citrus. You must have a Meiwa (round fruits) kumquat. They are sweeter than the nagami (more oval shaped). My dh loves kumquats. Good tip on the pruning back, I will have to remember that.

They are exceptionally sweet this year. I think that the cold nights help.

And they are in profusion!.

Be well

I have a Meiwa tree, though smallish its bearing well. When do you prune yours flyboyFL?
?

Longboat Key, FL

After the fruit has been taken off.

And -- when the pruning equipment is sharp.

Be well
