Kumquats can be seen all over Singapore, usually in the front of houses of Singaporeans who celebrate Chinese New Year. The Kumquat Tree is small and slow-growing. It has fruit on it that looks like Mandarin oranges.
I was excited when I spotted some of these plants at the back of a truck that was probably on it’s way to the nursery in preparation for the Chinese New Year crowds. I think you would see something like this only in South-East and East Asia where Chinese New Year is hugely celebrated. A bit like real Christmas trees and pumpkin patches in America I guess?
Closer up, you could see other small flowering plants which are used for decoration during Chinese New Year.
