FLOWER AND FRUIT OF FAN-TRAINED KUMQUAT (扇仕立てのキンカンの花と果実)



When we reformed the border of the main garden in late winter of 2016,
I pruned the kumquat (Kinkan), which had grown there for several years,
as a fan, because I thought that it was a attractive way to grow tree fruit,
and took only a small room. 

The kumquat bore a number of tiny pure white flowers in July,
and its fruits have grown large and some are ripening, turning yellow.
This kumquat is a variety with seedless fruits,
and is easy to eat whole.

2016年の冬の終わりに庭のボーダーをリフォームした際に
そこに数年前から育てていたキンカンを扇仕立てに剪定をしました。
扇仕立ては果樹の魅力的な樹形だし、
場所をあまり取らないからでした。

このキンカンが七月に無数の小さな純白の花をつけ、
その果実が大きくなってきて一部は黄色くなって熟してきています。
このキンカンは種なしの品種なので
丸ごと食べやすいのです。
