The Marumi Cumquat is a cold hardy, attractive evergreen tree used for its produce or as an ornamental plant. It produces masses of creamy-white, fragrant flowers followed by a sweetly flavoured, small, golden coloured orange round fruit. The fruit peaks in late autumn to winter and can be eaten straight from the tree. The skin and flesh have a more tender rind with a sweet-tart flavour making it the preferred fresh-eating cumquat. Can be brought inside for short periods of time and trained as a standard.
The fruit is perfect for jams, preserves, liqueurs. fruit salads, crystallising or to eaten as is.

Plant in a sunny, open position in well-drained soil. Dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root-ball. Take out the plant from the container and place the plant into the hole so that the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill in the hole firmly and water it well even if the soil is moist. To keep the tree free of grass and weeds, and to retain moisture, remember to mulch well but keep mulch away from the tree trunk to avoid collar rot.
Water regularly during warmer months, when buds appear, it starts flowering or when fruit is forming. Water container specimens every three to four days, and more often in hot weather. Do not water the trunk.
Prune in late spring with pruning shears to shape the tree and to remove any dying, low hanging branches or leaves from the tree. Take off any suckers at the base of the trunk and on branches to encourage new growth.
