Kumquats are fruits of a type of evergreen shrub, native to Southeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific. The kumquat resembles an orange, but is much smaller and ovular in shape. The fruit is eaten whole, along with the skin, which has a sweet flavour. The inside of the fruit is sour in taste. Kumquats are used to make marmalade, preserves and jellies. They are also added to salads, desserts and teas.
