Here are a couple of pics of the trees (shrubs) that I am trying to identify. You can see that the frost has discolored the leaves a bit. These pics were taken this morning.

looks like

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.

What I will do

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.

What in the world do you do with kumquats?

Thanks for all your help!:)

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.

kumquats

The fruits are full of seeds and look like an orange when you cut one open. Nothing like the persimmons we have here. Though some aren't much bigger.
