A new hybrid kumquat variety developed in Japan, this fruit is larger than the standard kumquat, though still measure only 2-3 inches, with a slightly more oval shape. The sweet rind ranges in color from light gold to a deep orange. The fruit does have a few small, edible seeds and provides a pleasantly tart flavor that plays well off of the sweetness of its rind. The entire fruit is edible whole as a hand snack or makes an excellent ingredient in stuffings, cakes, and muffins. Product of California.
