Kumquats

These fruits look a lot like oranges, dont they? They are much smaller, however. The kumquat is bright orange and is also called a dwarf orange. This little fruit may not be as famous as its larger relatives, but it is certainly not inferior in terms of taste. And did you know you can not only eat the juicy insides, but also the peel? Tasty and hassle-free

ORIGIN

The origin of the kumquat lies in China, but our selection of kumquats come from South Africa, Israel and Spain. 

 

TASTE

The outer skin of kumquats offers an intense, aromatic, and bitter-sweet flavour profile. The flesh has a bitter-sour flavour. The combination of the sweeter skin and the bitter-sour flesh creates an interesting refreshing flavour, making them a versatile ingredient in the kitchen. 

USE AND PREPARATION

Kumquats require no peeling and can be enjoyed as they are. A quick rinse before consumption is advisable. These little fruits are not only delightful as snacks but also make fantastic additions to salads, beverages, and, believe it or not, they can even be grilled for a surprising twist! 

STORAGE ADVICE

Store kumquats at room temperature, for instance in your fruit bowl. The fruit is ripe when the skin is bright orange/yellow. If you choose to refrigerate them, they’ll remain in good condition for a few days. 

EXOTIC TIP!

While drinking water is undeniably healthy, sometimes it can feel a bit boring. Elevate your water game by adding slices of kumquat for a delicious and cheerful infusion of flavour. It’s not just tasty; it’s something refreshingly different! 

HEALTH BENEFITS OF KUMQUATS?

Kumquats are great vitamin C sources, providing a vital boost to your immune system. In addition, kumquats contain potassium.
