Sweet Kumquat Tree ‘Meiwa’ (Fortunella crassifolia)

Sweet Kumquat Tree ‘Meiwa’ (Fortunella crassifolia)

Sweet Kumquat Tree ‘Meiwa’ (Fortunella crassifolia)

'Meiwa’ is known as the Sweet Kumquat with the typical golden-orange colored fruit that other kumquat trees have. Yet eating a ‘Meiwa’ kumquat is a delight unto itself. Pop the entire large gumball-sized fruit into your mouth and allow the sweet flavors to permeate your senses. ‘Meiwa’ is not available commercially like ‘Nagami’ (the oval kumquat) but they are easily grown in a home environment as long as you have a sunny window and keep the root system healthy by drying the soil a little between waterings. The highly fragrant blooms arrive in summer with fruit ripening during the winter, usually from December through April. This is the perfect plant to give you that vitamin C boost in the dead of winter. Our grafted plant blooms and fruits sooner.
