Beautiful tree; I have seen them 24 feet tall; still beautiful and soooo productive. Sorry to say most just enjoy the color and do not enjoy the fruit. BTW is that a Plumeria in the white pot? You have to be careful about that on the citrus forum... some people are sensitive to "invasive" plants...LOL

RE: dad's kumquat

Wow, this is a very handsome kumquat tree!. It looks like has a lot of fruits on it already. I love kumquat friut.

John, I know what your "invasive" Plumeria means from other thread, LOL. You have sense of humor.

RE: dad's kumquat

Please don't spread it around that I might have a sense of humor; I am already in enough trouble here.

RE: dad's kumquat

yes, it has quite a few fruits on it, and it has some blooms on it too, kinda hard to see.

Hi Laura! Good to see you! I agree with you:-)

Houstontexas, that is a wonderful looking tree. I wish I could grow a tree as big and beautiful as that. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

What are those white flowers on those plants against the house. I love them. Are they fragrant? Boy, look at all those plants!


RE: dad's kumquat

i believe those are Texas Spider Lilies. i've never smelled them, so couldnt tell you if they're fragrant or not.
