Kumquat is a plant that has existed for thousands of years and which probably originated in Southern China.
It came to Europe in the middle of the 1800s, first as a potted plant, then in the export product.
In Japan used it much as an ornamental plant in gardens, with its shiny green leaves and beautiful white blomster.Kumquaten is a small, valnøddestor citrus fruit and is harvested when fully ripe, since there is very little starch in the flesh and can not be mature significantly.
When purchasing, select Kumquats are a little hard and without bruising or soft spots. When a kumquat is too old, skin begins to crumble.
