Hybrid between lime and kumquat
The limequat is small, oval and yellow or green and contains seeds or pips. Its skin is sweet and it contains a bitter pulp with a flavour similar to lime. It can be eaten raw, but the juice and rind can be used to flavour drinks or dishes since they are highly acidic.
Rich in fibre, the limequat is also full of vitamins (C, B5 and B9) and mineral salts (potassium, phosphorus, calcium).
The limequat is therefore good for maintaining energy levels and is a natural anti-stress agent that supports proper immune system function.
