Do you feel these would be best for grafting or do you think they'd root decently on their own?

They’re not that fresh anymore, been in the fridge since post origin. I’d say grafting is the safest bet. Kumquats are harder to root in my opinion.

If I were a better grafter I'd likely take them off your hands, alas, I have a notoriously bad success rate.
Thanks for the insight on rooting kumquat cuttings though.

I'm probably too late on these, especially with no rootstock at the moment.  But I would try to root some if the success rate is even halfway decent and they're still sitting there.
