ISO kumquat
« on: February 16, 2021, 12:02:10 PM »
Hi!

I haven't seen this fruit in my area for a while now, thus I decided to try growing a tree myself. Do they root well from cuttings or should I start from seed? In any case, I am looking to buy.

How about grafting it?

I have a few fruits hanging on my tree. I could send you about 10 seeds if you want, but I would check with local nurseries first/ and or graft it like mentioned above.

I recommend getting a grafted Nordmann seedless nagami, Meiwa, Fukushu, or Marumi from any mail order shipper.  They are all great varieties.  I got mine from FourwindsGrowers in CA.  I have seen them from Logees also which has been good to me.
