We source our Kumquat from small growers in the North of Sicily: this is uncommercial and dedicated work, as each tiny fruit is hand-harvested. The season begins with green-blushed skins and a brighter acidity progressing towards a deep orange, larger fruit with more sweetness. Eat whole, slice and candy in sugar syrup for desserts

Product life guaranteed for 2 days excluding delivery day, with an average of 2.5 days.
I love kumquats, and was expecting these to be special given Natoora produce can be marvellous, but they were underripe to the point they were simply not nice. It seems I've been unlucky, looking at the other reviews, but they're too expensive to risk this happening again.
Firstly, on the basis of three purchases, these are consistently great kumquats. Great meaning the outer flesh is deliciously sweet and the inner pulp wonderfully sour. This delivers the great sucker punch of unexpected flavour combination that makes kumquats among the most delightful of fruits. Second, you need to try kumquats, raw, if you have not already. They deserve a podium place among the worlds best tasting fruits. Like tomatoes and lots of other fruits and veg the quality really matters. If you have tried poor kumquats you could walk away dismayed. Try these and you just might fall in love.
Thank you to Ocado for stocking kumquats! I love cooking with them and they are difficult to find.
These ones were mostly very good, but marked down one star as there were a couple that were starting to go bad in the bag we received. Still more than enough for the meal we were making. Thank you!
