Fortunella obovata Fukushu is a naturally small tree with a spreading habit that makes it an attractive ornamental shrub. The leaves are broader and fruit larger than other kumquat species. At 1 1/2 inches long, the oval fruit boasts thin, sweet, edible rind with tart, acidic flesh and few seeds. It's an especially hardy variety that can withstand temperatures as low as 28ºF without protection. When planted in the ground, Fukushu will reach 6-10 feet tall, shorter as a container plant. Its summer blossoms are exquisitely fragrant with fruit ripening in winter..
Citrus plants are shipped from early April through June. Since they arrive with their bare roots packed in a damp sawdust mixture, please be prepared to plant with potting soil and a 3-5 gallon container. Complete instructions are included with each order.
