The Nagami Kumquats are hidden among the brugmansia and avocado tree leaves. If not for the vibrant orange color they would be easily overlooked. Please remember to use the PicLens which highlights the details of the photos.

These are lovely kumquats – we Chinese keep these as house plants for good luck. My father-in-law who had cancer and beat it earlier this year, but other health complications took over and he recently passed away. He would have admired these images, especially #2 & #3. Our family would like to dedicate these kumquat images to T.J. Chow.

Thought I would chime in that I am having luck growing a dwarf Kumquat
Although mine are soo big you have to take bites versers the kinds I
have had before you just pop in your mouth.
I also wish I had a clue when the are ready. I made a horrible sour
mistake the other day.

Angela, I’m with you—we need a wand to wave over the fruit to tell when it’s at its prime.

Believe it or not, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a kumquat; I’m thinking they are pricey here in Connecticut

You can also make pies w/ them.
I like to eat them just plain.

I tried a kumquat once. I definitely need lessons.

shredded or chopped K-quats are great in fruit salad or a fruit yogurt mix
