Nagami Kumquat Tree - why hardly any fruit?

12 years ago

Hi have a Nagami Kumquat tree in a 9 or 10 gallon ceramic pot espaliered. It's probably about 3 feet tall or so, but blossomed twice over the past 3 months with I'd say 200+ blossoms each time. However, of all those little white flowers, there's only about 9 fruit growing? Anybody know why so few fruits from so many blossoms? Any way I can get more fruit out of it? I'm thinking of planting the tree in the ground and taking off the espalier (not that I think that will product more fruit, but the tree might grow bigger).

Any help/advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
