First harvest for the season – about 9 oz. of 1" to 2" fruits.
We’ve finished eating the first crop – probably 100 fruits in all. Absolutely delicious.
And now … a second crop is coming!
I’d never had kumquats until a recent visit to my local citrus nursery. Really enjoyed them. This is definitely a tree I want to add to my collection.
Get the Nordmann Seedless. It’s a real treat.
Good to know. I believe the one I had was seedless. The trees I got them off of were much larger than the one you have.assuming the nordmann is a dwarf variety?
This is a young plant that I obtained just a few years ago by mail order from Four Winds Growers.
IMHO nordman is very low on flavor. I have one 4 years old. Probably will
topwork to something better. I paid $$ for the budwood. Oh well!
Seedless or standard?
Richard, do you have any thoughts on use of Leverage vs Movento for citrus leaf miner? I am considering trying Movento as it is on label for both leaf miner in citrus, and SWD in stonefruit, and blueberries.
Timing is everything with Citrus Leafminer. I have not tried Movento and would be interested in its performance. Is it labeled for ACP?
My Kumqat leaves are slightly yellow in winter similar to yours, @Richard . I was initially worried about this. Is this a deficiency, or “normal” coloring?
In the photo above there is yellow fruit and also some yellow leaves visible in the bottom left. in my experience it is normal for up to 5% of Citrus leaves to have some sort of blemish. If more than that it can be due to a number of things.
No, it is not listed for ACP, and upon further investigation it seems to only have a fair rating on controlling SWD on stone fruit. I am not too concerned about ACP here, at least not yet as I live about 150 miles from Houston which the nearest reported sighting / HLB quarantine area, and about 200 miles from the main Louisiana citrus growing area where ACP has also been spotted as of last year…
@Isaac-1 – it turns out that Leverage 360 has additional labels for controlling SWD on various crops. See the links on the bottom half of this page:
Nordman is seedless nagami
I’d agree that the true Nordmann is Seedless Nagami, but unfortunately there are misnomer seeded Nordmann in circulation.
Sweet and sour, I loved them !!
My Nagami is in the same state of mass bloom. Just started this week.
