Organic limequats: a mouthwatering cross between limes and kumquats.
When we last 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 prepare
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.
Limequats can be kept in a cool room or the fridge for at least a week.
Our Limequats are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).
