The kumquat (Fortunella) is a citrus fruit, very small and elongated, originally cultivated in Asia. Nowadays the Mediterranean areas are perfect as well to cultivate this delicate fruit.
It is usually eaten all at once, pulp and peel together: while the pulp has a slightly sour taste, the soft peel has a sweet taste together with the aromatic oils it contains.
Production area and harvesting
Our kumquats (variety Margarita) are cultivated in the province of Granada, in Andalucía, in the South-Spain. The special climate of the mountains is a perfect mix of moderate temperatures and frequent rain. Due to the different and specific environment, the harvest time might vary and begins in December and lasts until April.
The Kumquats are offered loose in cardboard boxes.
