The Nagami Cumquat, scientifically known as Citrus margarita, boasts vibrant, small, oval fruits which double as both a visual treat and a delectable snack. The highlight of this tree is its dual-tasting fruits – with the tart flesh harmoniously complemented by its sweet skin, allowing them to be consumed whole. Relish the fresh, tangy flavour during Birak to Bunuru (early to late summer) when they're ripe for the picking.
This versatile plant thrives in both in-ground and potted environments and demands a sunny spot for optimal growth. If you're thinking of planting it in sandy ground, a good dose of soil conditioner will greatly enhance its health and yield. From Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn), it's crucial to ensure consistent watering, especially during hotter spells. To support its fruiting capability, consider feeding it with a citrus-specific fertiliser come Djilba (early spring). A touch of light pruning post-harvest helps maintain the tree's form and encourages future yields.
