It has been a terrible year for oranges and grapefruits -- but this is the second crop on "Old Faithful."
Kumquats (the sweet ones).
Very nice your banana plants look well to mine are crispy critter
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.
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!.
I have a Meiwa tree, though smallish its bearing well. When do you prune yours flyboyFL?
After the fruit has been taken off.
And -- when the pruning equipment is sharp.
