The fruiting time does vary. Some variables include fertilizer, water, weather, or tree's age. But you often hear the myth: it takes decades for kumquat trees to fruits. Is it true, though?
Not entirely. If you're growing the Golden Bean kumquat, some people have got it to bear fruits after a year or so. If you're growing bigger trees like the Fukushu, it might only take 4-5 years.
This is the video about the "quat" we were talking about:
They got the seeds from eBay & used the Ziploc bag germination method. Under 1.5 year, the tree actually produced fruits. Did we mention: all of this was done in their apartment.
If you want fast-growing kumquats, you can choose these types. This is a myth-buster to some myths saying that it takes 7 or decades for kumquats to fruit.
If you enjoy chit-chatting about kumquats or citrus trees, join the folks here:
Some growers have shared that their kumquat grows to over 20ft tall & produces fruits within 5 years. You'll get bountiful crops all year round since. It's certainly worth the wait.
