Description

Meiwa kumquats offer a sweet flavor. An entirely edible citrus that offers the occasional soft seed. Since they are entirely edible, it makes them versatile in both sweet and savory applications. The flesh is tart with a lovely citrus burst and eating or using both the skin and flesh together will create a sweet-tart flavor balance.
 
They are available in the winter through spring and are high in vitamin C, and contain good amounts of vitamins A, E and B-complex. Kumquats are also full of antioxidant-rich flavonoids, which are concentrated in the skin which holds many of the vitamins and antioxidants and also contains high amounts of fiber and pectin.
 
The preparations and presentations for Kumquats are vast as well since they can be cooked, fresh, or preserved.  They are the perfect ingredient in desserts, beverages. They pair will with white meats, seafood, red meats, chilies, herbs and creamy cheeses so there are endless ways to experiment with this ingredient.
 
STORAGE: They can be stored at room temperature for 3-5 days upon arrival or up to a week if refrigerated.
