The Kumquat is a plant in the citrus family which produces small, olive-sized fruit with a somewhat sour flesh surrounded by a sweet edible skin. When eaten whole, the fruits provide a delicious balance of sweet and sour which has made them a hugely popular crop worldwide.
It is an evergreen, large shrub or small tree left to its own devices but usually managed and pruned to keep it compact and the fruit crop easier to harvest.
