How long does it take for kumquats to bear fruit?
Similarly, it is asked, why is my kumquat not fruiting?
It could be that pruning was too severe or too late in the spring and the kumquat is putting all its energy into leaf regrowth. If your soil is too lean or boggy, then your kumquats may not produce flowers. Kumquat trees also need a fair bit of zinc. A zinc deficiency in the soil can lead to a kumquat not blooming.
Consequently, are kumquat trees self pollinating?
Most citrus trees grown indoors or outdoors are self-fruitful, including oranges, grapefruit, kumquats, lemons and limes. However, some mandarin orange varieties produce more fruit with cross-pollination, but those fruits may have more seeds than those that self-pollinate.
Of the citrus, kumquats are fairly easy to grow, and with their smaller size and few to no thorns, they are perfect for kumquat container growing. Likewise, since kumquats are hardy to 18 F. (-8 C.), growing kumquat trees in pots makes it easy to move them out of frigid temperatures to protect them during cold snaps.
