Kumquats: Cute, little, oval-shaped, edible
fruit that closely resemble an orange.
After the weekly color reveal on Project 64, I am
always hypervigilant for that week's color. In the produce
section, during my weekly grocery shopping, the
Kumquats caught my eye as they were a perfect little
specimen of yellow-orange.
According to Wikipedia - "Kumquats are often eaten raw. As the rind is sweet and the juicy centre is sour, the raw fruit is usually consumed either whole—to savour the contrast—or only the rind is eaten. The fruit is considered ripe when it reaches a yellowish-orange stage and has just shed the last tint of green."
I have one daughter who is up for trying anything. So...we each popped one in our mouths at the same time. Wow! That little bugger was so sour! She spit hers right out (I did finish mine). We decided to try another and the next one was much sweeter for both of us.
They were quite the hit. The girls had friends over through the weekend and they all took turns trying them, though I think more were spit out then actually fully eaten.
This last picture is my submission for P64 this week.
