Changshou Kumquat (Fortunella obovata ‘Fukushu’)
Rare and hard-to-find, the Changshou Kumquat is grown for its large juicy fruit. Fragrant white flowers bloom from May to September with the fruit ripening year-round. Changshou’s pear-shaped fruit is larger than other kumquat varieties and it usually has five or six segments of fruit inside the sweet, thin skin. We’ve been working for the past five years to bring the Changshou, or ‘Fukushu,’ kumquat to the US market since we think it’s the best kumquat we’ve grown and it makes a perfect potted specimen. Kumquats are among the hardiest citrus; they tolerate short bursts of cold temperatures into the 20s°. They are also self-fertile. In China and Japan, the Changshou Kumquat is used as an ornamental container plant for the home since it creates a lovely small decorative tree with the added appeal of healthy fresh fruit. Remember, the most delectable flavor comes from eating the whole fruit, peel and all. This is a grafted plant shipped in a 4" pot that blooms and fruits sooner.

Keep the root systems healthy and active. A period of dryness helps stimulate flowers and fruiting. Mimic Florida’s climate- wet summers and dry fall/winters.

Most important for potted citrus:

• Full sun and high light. The more the better.
• For faster growth and an active root system,
   grow them warm.

• Do not over pot.
• Grow in clay pots for optimum root health.
• Fertilize spring through fall. 
• High light aids in flowering and fruiting.
• Fertilize in growing season 1-2 times a month.
• Water when the soil is visually dry or at first signs of wilt.
