When I ask people if they would like a Kumquat they look at me as if I have said something rude! A what? And I wonder why it is that the Kumquat has never gone mainstream? The most likely explanation is that for some mysterious reason, the rind is the sweet and tasty bit and the juicy fruit is sour! There is probably a metaphor somewhere there? Most often, the Kumquat is grown for its ornamental value. The small oval citrus fruits resemble miniature oranges and look wonderful hanging from the stems between the dark leathery foliage of the tree. They look great as standards and they produce seasonal periods of heady blossom fragrance, as do all members of the citrus family.
