Kumquat - Fruit


 

Kumquats are small, oval citrus fruits. They are usually between one to two inches long and have leathery orange or yellow skin. The fruit has a sweet outer skin and a tart inner flesh.  The fruit can be eaten whole or some people prefer eating only the skin.

 

Kumquats are similar in appearance to other citrus fruits except kumquats are much smaller. The picture to the left compares kumquats to an orange.
