Limequats are interesting trees and have specific needs. This talks about those and will help you to grow them better. Your limequats will turn out well if you know more about them and what they need. Plants usually don’t thrive if people just go off on a tangent and try to plant them wherever and whenever because each needs a certain amount of sun, water and other things.
- A limequat (Citrus x floridana) is a fruiting tree that is a hybrid between a kumquat and a key lime.
- Limequat trees perform well in most soils and prefer full sun to partial shade. An ideal spot will protect the tree from hot summer sun and cold winter wind
- Limequat fruits are usually ready for harvest from November through March. The fruit is usually picked green, then ripens to yellow on the counter.
“Limequat plant care is relatively easy, as long as you keep your tree protected from the cold.”
