More Information
LoreKumquats are used all over the world in culinary recipes and holiday decorations. The common name, which has been spelled cumquat, or comquot, means "gold orange" in China. The Japanese equivalent is kin kan or kin kit for the round type, too kin kan, for the oval type. In Southeast Asia, the round is called kin, kin kuit, or kuit xu, and the oval, chu tsu or chantu. In Brazil, the trade name may be kumquat, kunquat, laranja de ouro, or dos orientais.

Design IdeasWith its clusters of small orange fruit, this tree is highly ornamental and it's little enough to tuck in anywhere. Its upright form lends itself to low, mounded underplantings. Beautiful in a container planting on an outdoor patio or indoors in the kitchen or sun room. Great addition to an Asian inspired theme garden.
