Dwarf Fukushu Kumquat Citrus Tree

Combining a thin, sweet orange skin with juicy, tangy-sweet flesh, Fukushu kumquats are a favorite for eating out of hand, baking in tarts, making into marmalade or using as a garnish for cocktails. Our kumquat tree arrives ready for transplanting into the ground, a planter, or a decorative container (wooden planter shown not included). A dwarf variety, it will bear fragrant white blossoms in the spring and olive-sized fruit in the winter. Grow indoors in all zones; outdoors in zones with light frost conditions. 3-year old tree arrives fully rooted in a black plastic pot and is suitable for container or ground planting. Arrives 18" -24" high. Grows 4'-8' high, 3'-4' wide in a pot; 10'-12' high, 8' - 10' wide in the ground. Requires full sun. Produces fragrant, white flowers in spring and olive-sized fruits in winter. Grown in USA. Agricultural regulations prohibit shipment to FL, TX, AZ.

Plants don't Survive under the best care
May 20, 2016
Plant arrived, looked healthy, the roots in the wood chips were extremely wet. However, i saw that this is a plant grown from a graft. I wish William Sonoma would mention this. Upon repotting it in 10 gallon pot with well drained soil, the plant experienced tremendous leaf drop while placed in full sun in the next seven days but no growth occurred. Plant was wintered with artificial lighting and temperature control and leaf drop was gradual. I took it out this spring and the remaining leaves dropped and plant died oozing a lot of sap around stem nodes and where the graft is. The plant was well looked after, Fertilized with the right NPK proportions along with trace minerals which are essential too.
I have another citrus which I propogated from a seed which about 5 years old and thriving.
Cons: Quality, Not Durable

Sent diseased tree
March 31, 2016
I contacted the vendor for this Kumquat and sent pictures. I was told to throw it away because it was too hard to treat and send them my shipping information and they would replace it. NO THANKS! I sent them a email back stating that Willams-Sonoma wanted it back and I wanted a refund. They had to have seen this when they shipped it. I sure did when I opened the box. This costs way too much for them to send out plants like this. Buyer beware!
Pros: nice size
Cons: diseased

new kumquat to evaluate
March 4, 2015
This is a new cultivar for me to grow. The plant arrived in excellent condition.
I like the idea of it being bare-root . It allows me to control the potting mix used in the container. Frequently the potting mixes of the container grown citrus, available in local nurseries, are extremely dense and only suitable for direct planting in a garden.
My intended use allows me to eventually transplant the dwarf tree into a 10 or 15 gallon pot. The tree will be displayed on a patio so its fruit can be easily picked and immediately consumed.
The plant is already sending out new shoots after three weeks.
I would highly recommend the nursery grower and plan on acquiring several more citrus cultivars in the future.
