ISO Normand Seedless Kumquat
« on: June 30, 2020, 07:21:25 PM »
Anyone know where to purchase an established plant? Everywhere seems to be out of stock. If anyone has a 1 gal or larger (any kumquat actually Iíll buy lol-I have meiwa and Fukushu and want more varieties) Iíd be willing to pay and for shipping too. Fourwinds and logees are out sadly.

Nordmann is great.  I have three and they're always loaded with fruit.  I got mine from FourWindsGrowers year ago but yes I see they are out of stock now.

I canít seem to find it anywhere! I chose to get a nagami from logees as of now, but once the nordman comes available I will purchase.

The finding of the Nordmann Kumquat  was the result of planting many Nagami seeds.  One of them produced a Nagami seedless fruit.  This is also how the Eureka lemon, among others were found.  The new seedless Nordmann was therefore named after the founder George Nordmann of Florida.

Wow, I didn't know that is how seedless is developed.  I thought is genetic alter.  Wonder how many trees did Mr. Nordmann breeded.
