Kumquat tree bearing fruit after 15 years!
I guess all it took was looking at the tree and thinking "I need to dig that up". This tree was purchased 15 years ago with a kumquat on it and sat in a pot on the porch for 3 years until we moved to a new house. I planted it in the yard and it did nothing for years. Then 4-5 years ago it began to sprout new growth out the top. It is now about 12ft tall. Just went out there and noticed dozens of fruit growing only at the top. I am assuming it is a "Marumi" kumquat because the fruit is roundish, not real sure though. I think it is more pear shaped and some fruits are close to 2 inches across. Is this common, or do I just have a really weird tree?
