How Long Does It Take A Kumquat Tree to Produce Fruit

Kumquat Trees 9 April 2020

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. Save 10% on Citrus trees with code CITRUS

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.
