CHARACTERISTICS Kumquat has been around since ancient times.
It has Asian origins and is one of the most cold-resistant citrus varieties. The Fortunella Margarita variety is the best known of the Kumquat collection. Its fruits are elongated, oval and acidic and they contain 2 to 8 medium-sized seeds, usually monoembryonic. They are best eaten uncooked, as the skin has a very sweet and intense flavour, while the pulp has a sour lemon-like taste. The leaves are small, dark green and shiny, lanceolate in shape with an inner or crenate margin, pointed apex.
The flowers are white, fragrant, small and pure.
