The Changshou kumquat, or Fortunella obovata…maybe we should keep it simple and call them like they do in Japan…Fukushu Kumquat. So, what are “Fukushus” you ask? Well, if you like the juicy citrus taste of mandarins, but a little more tart, and you enjoy small little flavor packed kumquats then you are sure to enjoy Fukushu Kumquats! The rind is orange and thinner than other varieties of kumquats. The flesh is orange, “sweet-tart” and acidic, and does contains a few seeds. Fukushus are quite versatile to enjoy. Think of all the great ways you can use them in your kitchen…you can eat them as is as a healthful snack, or sliced up in salads for that added “zing” of flavor. Of course they are awesome when used in preserves or purees. The juice can be used in marinades or cocktails, and even made into syrup. And think of how flavorful a vinaigrette salad dressing would be with that tangy citrus flavor. Yum-O! Fukushus will keep up to two weeks when refrigerated.
When are Fukushu Kumquats available?
Fukushu Kumquats have a rather short harvesting season. They are typically available December thru March. Due to availability and short season, annual market pricing will also vary from season to season.
