Looks like a kumquat tree to me it has them big old thorns and the fruit and leaves look like kumquat. So yea did them up and give them a try. But i would do it in the spring unless you put them in a pot and keep them inside over the winter.
I brought home about a dozen of the fruits and think I will plant several in pots. Maybe they will come up this winter. And if they don't come up, I will dig a few of the little ones up and transplant them. I am thinking about building a small greenhouse and that would be a great place to put them during the winter.
Here is a link that tell you all about the kumquat i just found it and it said that it is very cold tolerant to 10 to 15 deg i didn't think they were that tough. But it tells you alot about them hope it helps.
It sure looks like Kumquats, but it looks more like Loquats to me. I think Loquats is a Japanese fruit. When you break into one, is it kind of mushy like a Persimmon? Loquats are mushy and Kumquats are like a Satsuma inside that burns your lips after you eat a few.
