They are small shrubs in Citrus.  Mature size:8′-10′(H) X 8′-10′(W).  In pot will be or can be smaller.  Evergreen glossy leaves and small white fragrant flowers are really pretty!   I like their fruit peel is so frangrant and sweet can be eaten whole.

It is very easy to grow in full sun location with moist but well drained rich soil.  It is easy to propagate from seeds, cutting or by grafting.  Like all citrus they are not as cold tolerant in winter if you live in cold climate, just plant them in pots and bring them indoors by bright window in the fall.   USDA Zones: 8-12.

金棗是柑橘屬的小型灌木. 地植的成熟株高或寬幅為8-10呎.  盆植會較低矮或可以修剪控制高度及寬幅.   葉片光亮常綠,白花小而香很是美麗!   我喜歡它的果皮香甜可整顆入口.   鮮果可生吃,泡茶或製成果醬,蜜餞等.  容易栽種在全日照處濕潤但排水良好的肥沃土壤.  容易以種子,扦插或高壓等方式來繁殖.  由於它們不耐寒,秋天變冷前要搬進屋放在明亮的窗旁過冬.
