The Mandarinquat is slightly bulbous in shape with a petite neck at its stem end. The peel is thin and roughly pebbled with a brilliant orange color. The zest and skin are fragrant and entirely edible with a semi-sweet finish. Its pale gold flesh has a tender juicy pulp with a few seeds and its flavor is quite tart. Eating the entire Mandarinquat can balance the sweet and tart flavors, however it is best when prepared in sauces, purees and preserves.
The Mandarinquat is a hybrid result of a mandarin and a kumquat, hence Mandarinquat. It can often be mislabeled as an orange variety, though it has no orange parentage. It is also known as the Indio Mandarinquat as Indio, CA is home to one of the original planting groves of the Mandarinquat tree.
