Also know, how do you eat a Limequat?

Limequats are best suited for both raw and cooked applications and can be consumed whole. When used in cooked applications, the seeds are often removed as they impart a bitter flavor and the fruit can be sliced and added raw to green and fruit salads or used as an edible garnish for main dishes and appetizers.

Additionally, how do you eat kumquat? Eat the kumquat. Unusually, kumquats have a sweet rind and sour flesh. Nibble the end of the kumquat to taste the rind first. Once you encounter the mouth-puckering juice, you can either keep nibbling cautiously, or pop the whole fruit in your mouth.

In this way, how big do Limequats get?

Limequat trees are evergreen, and grow slowly up to a mature height of 4 to 8 feet.

How do you take care of a Limequat tree?

Plant your tree directly in the ground or in a container, and water deeply every other day for the first several months to ensure good root development. After that, water only when the top inch of soil is dry – every week or so. Reduce watering even more to once every two weeks in winter.
