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).
Country of origin
Grown in Spain.
These organic limequats are grown by Enrique Vallejo and his son Juan on their small-scale organic citrus farm in the north of Spain, just outside Malaga. Their fields are abundant with grapefruit, oranges, clementines, lemons – as well as experimental new varieties. A few of us went over to Spain to meet Enrique and Juan, as well as other Spanish growers old and new – read all about it on our blog.
