    An interesting new addition to our range, this attractive evergreen shrub is a citrofortunella hybrid, which is a cross between a kumquat and a key lime. It's fruits can be used to flavour drinks or dressings, and they are widely used in the US (from where they originate) in pies.

    Please note: Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that any plant will be sent out with buds, flowers or developing fruit.

  • Garden care: Ideally grow in a pot which is easily moved from terrace to conservatory, in a specialist citrus compost. Feed every two weeks with a special citrus fertiliser (there is one for summer and another for winter), and pot on or top-dress plants in late winter. Move outside after the risk of frost has passed to a sunny, sheltered patio.
  • Humans: Fruit harmful to skin with sunlight/skin allergen
