The last two hurricanes messed up our Meyer Lemon trees but they are coming back with a vengeance. We have a decent crop. Good lemonade and some recipes in today's PNJ. My kunquats are doing well. Sally destroyed my last pear tree.

Absolutely love kumquarts. Ate tons as a child.
Never heard of the varigated variety.
As a kid,my mom would send me out with a bucket to fill up. She would make jelly.
I get a bunch every year. My neighbors have huge trees but hate the fruit.
I have dried the seeds and planted them but they never have come up. ---- SAWMAN

Love Kumquats!! From times in Japan to back here in the melting pot.. as stated they are great for jams and preserving, or just snacks..
Sawman these seeds require humidity and moisture and darkness really to germinate. We used to keep a seed in a cup of water in the cabinet above the refrigerator to get them going.. then just plant from there! And they like sandy soils..
