Pruning and caring for a kumquat tree

Zone Southeastern exposure; gets the morning to early afternoon sun. | Marvin Eberhardt added on November 2, 2016 | Answered

My kumquat tree is young (about three years old) and gave a large bounty of fruit the first year, but has since not produced any fruit. It is very leggy, as I have not pruned it, ever. I have not fed it lately either. Any suggestions? Thank you, Marv Eberhardt.

Providing fertilizer intended to support fruiting, with a higher amount of phosphorus and potassium and a lower amount of nitrogen, could help your tree. Also see these articles:
