Kumquats are tangy, sour and slightly sweet citrus fruits and are the same size as grapes. They are bite-sized orange flavoured fruits rich in vitamin C and fibre. They also contain some amounts of other nutrients such as iron, B complex vitamins, manganese, copper and calcium. In addition, the edible seeds of kumquats contain healthy fats like omega-three fatty acids. They also have a high percentage of water. These make them a perfect and handy snack for instant energy and hydration. 

The name kumquat comes from a Chinese word that translates to ‘golden mandarin orange’. These tiny citrus fruits originated in China, and their cultivation takes place in some countries, including India and Japan. Kumquats are more stable in extreme environmental conditions as compared to oranges.
