Limequat is a hybrid between a kumquat and a key lime. The limequat is a relatively cold hardy tree that produces tasty, edible fruits. It is mostly a heat loving plant that thrives in tropical and subtropical climates. but yet is very cold hardy.
The mandarinquat is a hybrid of the mandarin and the kumquat. Like kumquats, they can be eaten whole, peel and all, although they’re larger with crunchier skin, and tend to have many small seeds. Raw, they can be eaten as a snack, sliced and used in salads, or paired with cheese. Cooked, they are delicious in sauces, purees, and preserves. They will keep refrigerated for up to two weeks.
Marumi Kumquats are the preference of many citrus growers because of its extreme cold hardiness and productivity. Numerous fruits are born on a single Marumi tree. Each fruit of a Marumi kumquat is covered with a very thin sweet peel with a delicious citrus flavor.
The Miewa kumkquat is the size of a marble and very sweet. You can eat the whole thing, rind, seeds and all – in one or two bites. The rind has an extraordinary spicy/sweet taste that is almost addicting once you bite into it. They are very cold hardy, yet can handle fry-pan hot summers. They can easily be wintered indoors in large pots. With fruit that ripens right around Thanksgiving, Meiwa kumquats are fun to have inside your home.
The Nagami kumquat is a breakfast-sized sausage looking kumquat that has a sweet skin and is tart inside. It is mostly good for jelly making, but some people like the punch of sweet and tart when you eat these kumquats in one to two bites.
