Known as the inside-out orange, kumquats are sweet on the outside and tart on the inside. Despite its small demeanor, kumquats are filled with a burst of sweet-tart citrus flavor. The paper-thin skin is where the majority of the sugar lies and has virtually no bitter pith; however, the flesh is mouth-puckeringly sour.

To no surprise, kumquats are filled with an abundant supply of vitamin C and fiber and have more fiber in a serving (about five whole Kumquats) of them than most other fresh fruits.

Because the entire fruit is edible, they can be candied or eaten whole. If candied, kumquats are perfect in fruitcakes and holiday truffles. Use in dressings, frostings or preserves, or mix into stuffing, cakes and muffins.

Look for fruit that is shiny with good color. Avoid those with blemishes or soft spots. Store in cool location up to seven days, or refrigerate unwashed, wrapped in plastic, in a crisper drawer up to two weeks.

The following prohibit the shipment of any citrus into their state: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Hawaii.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd Day.

Any orders that do not have the appropriate shipping method selected will not be shipped out. For assistance, please call us at 800-588-0151.
