Agroponiente Kumquat

A small citrus with a surprising nutritious treasure

A Citrus with edible skin? Yes, it exists. We present ‘Kumquat’, the only citrus with edible skin. At Agroponiente, we grow organic Kumquat on Spanish fields. The Kumquat is also known as the ‘orange dwarf’, and it achieves an explosion of flavours that delight the palate. Its skin with a sweet touch contrasts with a bitter and acidic pulp. So, what else do you need to know to try it?

It’s perfect for eating during the coldest months of the year and up until early Spring. The smallest citrus fruit that exists can protect us from low temperatures thanks to its high Vitamin C content. It is also suitable for kids, adults, the elderly, athletes, pregnant women and nursing mothers. This fruit is a must for Winter and Spring.

It belongs to the citrus family, so it’s rich in Vitamin C, potassium and folic acid. It also has a large amount of fibre and antioxidant properties, which are provided by carotenoids.

Why is Kumquat the best fruit for Winter?

Kumquat, the king of vitamin C. The exotic fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C and flavonoids, which contribute to cardiovascular health. In other words, Kumquat helps you say goodbye to bad cholesterol. And let’s not forget about its antioxidant properties: a great benefit of eating Kumquat is that it reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.

What about eating Kumquat to lose weight? It’s perfect too. Its high fibre content is beneficial in weight loss diets. Here’s a secret: it is very satisfying when we eat it.

If you’re pregnant, take note. Due to its high folic acid content, the Kumquat fruit is especially beneficial for pregnant women because it promotes the multiplication of cells generated in the first months of pregnancy. But, of course, its acidic composition can develop acidity.

Recommended in cases of anaemia. Since vitamin C increases iron absorption, it will be a good ally when it accompanies iron-rich foods.
