The lemonquat is a hybrid of lemon, meyer lemon it is suggested, and kumquat. It is oval and tapered near the top something like a pear but not as dramatic. Lemonquat is segmented like most citrus, the segments contain deep yellow flesh with a hint of orange.
The fruits peak at about 3 inches. Even though it is a hybrid, it can be grown from seed. Most hybrids will revert to one of the parent cultivars however citrus rarely does. Lemonquat seed will germinate true to variety about 90% of the time. I currently have a seedling I plan to grow as a bonsai - wish me luck :>
Lemonquat Trees and or seed is not readily available at local nurseries, the following are a few online dealers that will ship them.
