got them in early spring from fastgrowingtrees and got 3-4' large grafted ( $$ but ideal for production)
the limequat is doing well but the flower buds are a week or two behind the other

they were ratty for awhile but then grew their new leafs and now i have a good amount of flowers about to pop on the kumquat.

kumquat and limequats are hardy to 20* F but i am going to have each of these monsters next to kitchen table in front room for winter
tempted to leave in garage but will play it safe and bring them in

failed at some branch cuttings on these but will get some props going for bonsai down the road

id say theres a good chance ill be eating kumquats soon

video i enjoyed of these linked below, and im glad i found out they are highly productive
and easy for eating a homegrown citrus in taxachusetts
