Organic limequats: a mouthwatering cross between limes and kumquats.

We recently visited Enrique Vallejo and his sons on their small organic citrus farm near Malaga. They let us have a nibble of their latest experimental crops – and we were most impressed by these tasty little hybrids. Aromatic and tangy-sweet, limequats can be eaten whole, shiny skin, seeds and all. Enjoy raw, cook into a fragrant chutney, or use the juice and rind to flavour any number of drinks and dishes.

How to store limequats

Limequats can be kept in a cool room or the fridge for at least a week.

How to cook limequats

No need to prep – limequats are edible whole, including the sweet, fragrant skin and small seeds inside. They can be used in most recipes that call for kumquats – as a starter for ten, try our recipes for a kumquat compote, or kumquat and baked ricotta pancakes.
