Kumquat is a citrus-like plant that produces oblong-oval fruits that resemble dwarf oranges. The term “Kam Kwat” comes from Cantonese and means golden orange. Its original homeland is Asia, but today it is planted in much warmer countries in Africa, America and also in southern Europe. The plant is evergreen and grows densely branched into a shrub or small tree. The Fortunella is excellent for cultivating as an ornamental plant in pots or tubs and reaches a height of 1-3 m. The leaves are bright dark green, the branches have small thorns and countless white, very pleasantly scented flowers appear in summer.
