A Versatile Vegetable.
Kumquats are similar to miniature oranges. They have a very sweet outside skin, but the inner flesh is tart with very tiny seeds. Kumquats are best eaten whole because the outside sweetness balances the inner tartness.
Kumquats are enjoyable whole; sliced into salads or desserts; added to cocktails; or, prepared as marmalades.
fun fact: Kumquat means Golden Orange in Chinese which makes them very popular during Chinese New Year!
