Meiwa Kumquat Citrus Tree, also known as the “sweet kumquat” is much sweeter than the more well known and commercially grown Nordmann Kumquat. The fruits on Meiwa Kumquats are also larger than Nordmann Kumquats. Fruits can be eaten whole, skin and all! The skin is actually the sweetest part and the flesh adds a wonderful tart and spicy balance to the fruit. The Meiwa Kumquat is considered by many to be the preferred fresh eating kumquat and kids go crazy for them! A much healthier sweet-tart alternative to candy.
