Chang-Shou/Fukushu Kumquat

The Chang-Shou kumquat tree, also known as Fukushu, is thought to be a chance hybrid of two other kumquat varieties. It produces fruit slightly larger than Meiwa. It has fewer seeds and a mild, sweet flavor. This is another cold-hardy variety that’s perfect for container growing, topping off at 3 to 5 feet. The fruit is tasty fresh off the tree, as well as candied.

Characteristics:

  • Slightly bell-shaped fruit with only a few seeds
  • Larger fruit than Nagami
  • Peel is edible and peelable
  • Very ornamental tree
  • Perfect as an indoor tree
  • Leaves are larger and broader than other kumquats
  • Grow outside in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9 to 11
