Description/Taste


Limequats are the size of a kumquat, petite and oval with rounded ends. Their skin's coloring, when mature, is a warm yellow-green. The peel is thin, fragrant and sweet while its flesh is tart, much like a key lime and it bears a handful of thin seeds. They may be eaten raw and are entirely edible, though removing the seeds is recommended.

Current Facts


Limequats, botanically known as Citrus × floridana, are hybrids between varying limes and kumquats. Most Limequats have the juiciness of a key lime and the shape and tart qualities of a kumquat. Three varieties of Limequats have been distinguished: Eustis, Lakeland, and Tavares, named after towns in Florida, the state in which they were produced. Limequat varieties are more cold-tolerant than limes though less cold tolerant than kumquats.
