Introducing Kumquats...

Kumquats are small oblong orange looking things that almost tastes like an orange, but it's like 1000x better. It originates from a small fruit-bearing tree, a native plant particularly found in China, Taiwan, and parts of Southeast Asia. Harvest season for this small fruit comes during mid autumn to early winter. Kumquats are eaten whole, just pop it in your mouth, pierce the skin with your teeth, and taste the bittersweet tangy juice.Then spit the seed out.The kumquat is considered ripe when it reaches a yellowish-orange color. Like duh, don't eat them green. Also, the kumquat can be substitued for the olive in a Martini-to give it a zesty taste.
Enjoy a Kumquat today, at your participating grocery store.

Ps. I like to eat 50-for beginners may I suggest 15.
