A world of kumquats

Ted Holloman cleans and sorts kumquats at the Kumquat Growers Inc. packing house on Wednesday, in preparation for this weekend's Dade City Kumquat Festival. For the first time, the Kumquat Growers will have an open house to let visitors can see how kumquat shoots are grafted to a hardy root stock. It takes two years for a tree to produce fruit, and about five years before it makes enough fruit to turn a profit. The open house takes place 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday at the packing house, 31647 Gude Road, St. Joseph, near Dade City. Admission is free.
