  • Kumquats will last for about two days at room temperature, or about two weeks in an airtight, refrigerated container.

  • In folk medicine in some Asian countries, the Kumquat has been used to treat coughs, and colds.

  • Kumquats are best eaten whole — unpeeled. Their sweet flavor actually comes from the peel, while their juice is tart.

Health Benefits
