The Meiwa kumquat has a few notable differences that make it stand out amongst other kumquat varieties. The skin of this kumquat is much sweeter than the more commonly available Nagami kumquat. The sweet, slightly chewy skin mixes with the tart and juicy flesh in a mouth-watering burst of flavor.
The largest of any of the kumquat fruits, Oblong golden-orange fruits with a stubby neck have an exceptionally thick and sweet skin. The flesh brings the acidic balance to the sweet skin and usually has very few seeds.
This cross was made in 1909, and the variety was named and described in 1923. Fruit medium-small, globose to oval; colour yellow to orange-yellow. The tree is very vigorous, upright and thorny. Leaves are variable with some being trifoliate. Presumably because of the larger size and edibility of the fruit, it is much the most popular citrangequat variety.
