Kumquat success


Tuesday 05 January, 2016 by Uncle Spike

Whilst many crops have not favoured the weird weather of 2015, the humble little kumquat tree seems to be as happy as Larry, whoever that was. These deliciously tasty little bundles of Vitamin C don’t seem to mind extreme summer temperatures, prolonged winter storms, or even a heavy frost, unlike say lemons, which just go to pulp in hours.




Another couple of weeks and we’ll be scoffing these every day, as the clementines come to an end. At least it keeps the colds at bay 🙂

    Love kumquats – not easy to find in our local markets though!

  2. Hey Spike … I don’t think I’ve eaten Kumquat before. What do they taste like?

    Trying kumquats was on my 52 New Things last year after reading one of your posts. I was spectacularly underwhelmed by them.
    I’m afraid that what we can buy in the grocery stores during a Canadian winter are likely a far cry from the juicy freshness you can get off your own trees 😦
    Enjoy a few of them for me please.

  5. My kumquat tree survived the drought this summer and is back in full force. Full of fruit. Lovely post. I enjoyed seeing your tree.


...waiting to hear from you...
