* Kumquats can be eaten fresh out of hand whole—rind and all. The skin of the kumquat is sweeter than the flesh. Roll a kumquat between your fingers to mingle the sweet skin and tart flesh, then eat the whole fruit or slice it and add it to fruit salads. Kumquats can be used to make preserves, marmalades, relishes, and sauces. Kumquats can also be baked into bread and candied. Kumquats and kumquat hybrids look like miniature oranges. Most kumquats are rarely more than an inch long.
