Kumquat is the fruit of a small tree in the Rutaceae family, with the scientific name Citrus japonica. These small oranges resemble oranges to some degree, both inside and outside, even though they are smaller than most citrus varieties.
This shrub or small tree is native to the Asia-Pacific region, where Kumquat has been grown and cultivated for thousands of years.
There are various types of Kumquat, but the most common is the round Kumquat variety, which looks like a small orange.
Because of its sweet taste, Kumquat fruit is used for garnishes, cocktails, jams, jellies, preservatives, sweets, and desserts.
