How to Grow Limequats

Some of these fruits have the strangest names ever, do you agree? LOL. Remember when we looked at you how to grow kumquats and how to grow kaffir lime? Well those were all weird names at that time, but I have decided to one up myself by looking at how to grow limequats today.

Funny enough this is actually a cross between a key lime and those kumqats. However, what you get is a more cold resistant plant that can tolerate temperatures as low as 10 degrees F. This fruit tree will only grow to between 4 to 8 feet, and can be grown in containers too. Some people are known to have grown them into bonsai trees.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

If you are growing your tree in your garden, then find a spot with well drained soil that gets partial to full sun daily. Then take a few seeds and direct sow into your garden or container in early Spring. You can skip the seed sowing stage and just but seedlings instead. Fertilize twice a year once in Spring and the in early fall.

It is essential that you water as often as every other day, during the first few months. This will in turn help your plants stay healthy and grow faster. When established you can water weekly during the Summer months and biweekly in the Winter. When it comes to harvesting from November to mid March, it is recommended that you pick the fruit when it is still green, and allow to ripen and turn yellow indoors.
