Where can I buy a kumquat tree in Utah? Will it survive living outdoors in SLC?
Rate This FAQ
Kumquats are native to subtopic regions and are closely related to citrus trees. While they are more cold tolerant than most citrus, they can only withstand temperatures as low as 28 degrees, any colder and the plant will be seriously injured. Since our winters in northern Utah can get significantly colder than that in some years any trees planted outside would need a great deal of protection and care. The USDA hardiness zones recommended for kumquats are 8-10.
If you wish to purchase a kumquat you most likely will have to either order on line or place a specialty order with a local nursery that offers that service.

- I just moved to SLC from Phx,Az and many of the plants here are new to me. I have some flowers in my yard that resemble "Blue Dicks" closely but, the flowers do not cluster -- they each form on a single stem and have been flowering since the end of April. I also have some Violet-like flowers growing in my lawn at about the same height as the grass. I would like to know what they might be and where I might be able to purchase seed or bulbs of the same type so I can plant more
- Two years ago I moved into a house that has a large apricot tree in the backyard. Last year was our first apricot harvest. The apricots got large a ripe, and looked great. But when I picked one and tasted it, is was VERY mushy and bland. Upon further investigation, all the fruit was this way. Does this mean that the tree is too old or maybe just a bad tree? I don't want to deal with the hassle of a fruit tree if I can't use the fruit.

Is there any validation to her statement?
