This is the same Fukushu kumquat on flying dragon posted here in July 24, 2021, 12:40:36 PM.  It is 3 year 8 months old now.

Meiwa starts out in the morning under lights,.

Then it goes in our bathroom in a south facing window. The bathtub is full of warm water and is enclosable.

Then back under the lights.

When It starts to grow give it a liquid feed Like Miracle Gro or fish feed.  High nitrogen is what your tree will need.

If you try the 10 degree tangerine you will need the 2-2 cultivar.  The 3-3 cultivar will ripen long after your first fruit killing frost most years

I grafted 4 Meiwa and 2 Fukushu.  Both Fukushu's grafted nice.  3 Meiwa's died and 1 had a very bad graft take that finally healed over.  The tree above was the survivor Meiwa.

My seed grown Meiwa kumquat tree produced2 fruits about an inch diameter.  My tree was twice the foliage.  His trees had to many fruits.  the grow really small on a tree that size.  It may be a Meiwa tree after  all.
I now have a 7 month old T-Bud Meiwa on a 3 year old Flying dragon that I will not be cutting limbs off like he did to his.

I put 4 citrus and one olive tree in the ground last spring. I have been researching for about 2 years on how to get them to survive a winter by using 100 watts of electricity (a string of Christmas LIghts) along with plastic, styrofoam and wood chips. I am actually having a problem with them being to warm. Last night it was 16 degrees and inside my set up it was 62 degrees...as you look at my photo the trees are actually 2 feet below the level of the plastic. i planted them 1 foot below ground level and added 1 foot of wood chips. At 10 cents a kilowatt hr...my lights are running at 100 watts an hour.  So basically 1 cent an hour to heat my setup

I have hear of Poncirus +  and swamp lemon.  They both are much better tasting.  Starting with these may help a lot

If the fruits turn out to taste good it may go inground.  I have 2 of them to replace the 2 seed grown Fukushu trees.


Tree is 28 months old from T-Bud growth start.  The tree above is 1 year older.  I was amazed how much faster the tree grow on Flying dragon than own roots.

Good idea. I grafted a top level bud to a flying dragon rootstock seedling.  The leaf color is much better and it flowers much better.

After a 10F night I had to move my inground Fukushu tree from the cold hardy citrus group to this group.  I will probably have to move it this spring to the morgue.

Someone threw a Nagami seed in the ocean and the result was admiral Nelson escapes only to see the plant monster destroy his submarine.
