Nagami Kumquat

Fortunella margarita 'Nagami'

A fruiting evergreen bush that produces the most popular commercial variety of kumquat. Dark green glossy foliage becomes speckled with small fragrant flowers during spring into late summer, attracting birds and local pollinators. Winter fruits are small and oval-shaped, with sweet yellow-orange skin and tart, acidic flesh, and may be consumed whole and raw or processed. Very ornamental and eye-catching when grown in containers, this species can also be kept in bright, indoor light.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
