Before selling, kumquats must be stored in a cool, dry place at 2 to 4°C and at a relative humidity (RH) of 90 to 95%.
We advise consumers to store kumquats at room temperature, in a fruit bowl, for example.
Kumquats don’t need to be peeled and can be eaten as is. However, do rinse them off before eating. Tip: Kumquats are delicious in a salad!
Extra tip for the consumer
Drop some kumquat slices in your water for a delicious flavour!
If the kumquat has a bit of green colored skin, then it will ripen naturally at room temperature. The fruit is ripe once the skin is bright orangey-yellow.
