EAT ME Limequats Product photo

Limequats are among the smallest citrus fruit varieties.  You won't find them much larger than 3-4 centimetres. The fruit is the result of a cross between two other citrus fruits, the lime and the kumquat. This produced a rather unusual fruit because you can also eat the skin and the pips. Or rather, drink, because limequats are especially appreciated for the juice.

It can be compared to lemon juice, with an extra aromatic bite and a pleasant acidity. That makes the limequat a real taste maker in many drinks. And do you want to prevent other fruits such as bananas, apples and pears from discolouring after preparation? A few drops of juice will do wonders.


The limequat is usually used as a flavour booster in drinks like cocktails, but try it in a dish too. A fish dish like salmon is an obvious choice, but it can also flavour meat dishes.


You can peel the EAT ME limequat if you plan to cook with it. If you only need the juice, simply slice in half and squeeze out the juice.
