    oh we see pots of kumquats as decorative plants during Chinese New Year as it symbolizes wealth. 😀 Well, anything that looks/sounds like great abundance in Chinese, you will see that during the auspicious festival. 😀

    “kumquats”, sounds like Cantonese to me. “kum” = golden, and “quats” = the Cantonese name for this kind of fruit. I always think this kind of fruit is very sour, or is it sweet at times?

    That looks nice, but it’s a climate for citrus fruits rather than humans in my opinion.
