What is a Mini Orange?
We call it "Mini Orange" - the real name is
"Kumquat". The Scientific Specifications: Kumquats belong to
the genus Fortunella of the family Rutaceae. The round
kumquat is classified as Fortunella Japonica and the oval
kumquat as Fortunella Margarita.
The Kumquat resembles much of an orange. The
fruit is about the size of a large olive and similar in
shape. In fact, we call it mini orange because when bitten
into the flesh, one can taste the intense, deep fragrance of
the essential oils. Furthermore, the taste has hints of
orange, orange blossom, bergamot, and lime.
