Product Description

PLANT CHARACTERISTIC & GROWING AREAS

Vietnamese Kumquat, scientifically known as Fortunella Japonica Thunb or Citrus Japonica, is also referred to as kumquat or cumquat in English. It belongs to the Rutaceae family.

Kumquat trees are small, typically about 1m – 1.5m tall, with numerous branches and leaves. The leaves are oval-shaped and dark green, growing singly. The flowers form clusters in the leaf axils or at the ends of branches, with white petals. The fruit is small, spherical, approximately 2-3cm in size. When young, the fruit has shiny green skin, which turns to a golden-orange color when ripe. Inside, it contains many pale yellow segments, filled with acidic juice, and numerous small seeds.

In Vietnam, the northern provinces provide ideal conditions for kumquat cultivation: Ninh Binh, Hanoi, Bac Ninh, Hai Duong, Hai Phong, Da Nang, Quang Nam, etc. Kumquat trees are often grown for ornamental purposes during the Lunar New Year due to their abundance of lush foliage and shiny golden-orange fruits.

CULTIVATION & HARVESTING

Kumquats are usually propagated by grafting. Growing them from seeds can lead to genetic variations and longer fruiting periods. While kumquats can be planted year-round, the best time for grafting new plants is typically in February-March or August-September annually. Provinces in the South and Central regions can plant at the beginning or end of the rainy season.

The soil for cultivation should be garden soil mixed with sand, ensuring good drainage and sufficient moisture retention. The ideal pH level is 5-6. The planting beds should be raised, with water channels surrounding them, beds about 4-6m wide, and channels about 1-1.5m wide. The beds should be higher than the water channels by 20-30cm to prevent waterlogging, which can stunt the growth of kumquats and potentially lead to their demise. Kumquats require plenty of sunlight, can tolerate humidity, and thrive at temperatures between 20-24°C. Adequate watering is essential to avoid soil dryness, which can hinder growth and lead to yellowing and gradual leaf drop.

With proper care, kumquat trees typically start bearing fruit within 1-2 years after planting. In Vietnam, flowering usually occurs between the middle and end of September, followed by fruit set and maturation. Fruit harvesting typically takes place in the middle of the spring season.
