Flowering times on citrangequat?
« on: August 14, 2021, 01:11:58 PM »
Hey all,

I went outside yesterday, and noticed that my Thomasville was putting out several more flowers. I don't remember it flowering this late in the year before, even with several dozen fruits on it. Is this the kumquat heritage showing or maybe the extreme heat this year?

Even the Meyer lemon has stopped flowering...

Many citrus varieties produce late blooms, called the off season bloom.  Fruit produced by the off season bloom is normally poor in quality.

Since our previous frosts don't come through till November/December, I think these might make it. Especially since they are best green. Let's see....

"Quats" will flower later in the season, this is normal.
