Kinkan, known as Kumquat, originates from China.  It is like the petite version of mandarin orange and is best identified by its bright & shiny orange peel.  Crunchy and firm to the bite, its aromatic flavor when fully ripe can be experienced during winter times. Kinkan is often made in to preserves and jams.  Kinkans are also used as a natural remedy for symptoms of colds and flu. The fruits are traditionally smashed, mixed with ginger, salt, and honey, and steeped as a soothing tea.

Kinkans are an excellent source of fiber to regulate the digestive tract, vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning, and vitamin C to strengthen the immune system and reduce inflammation.
