Kumquats

Our kumquat tree bear a lot of fruits this year.

The small oval fruits look and taste like mini-oranges.  The main difference between a kumquat and a regular orange is that, besides the size, you can eat the whole fruit of a kumquat, including the peel.

Some breeds of kumquats taste sour while others taste sweet.  Ours is the sweet breed, which costed us a bit more than the sour breeds when we purchased the sapling from the nursery. However, it’s surely worth the price, since all of us like the sweet, juicy fruits.
