Growing and harvesting

Kumquat is a member of the Rutaceae family, but distinguishes itself by the fact that the fruit can be eaten whole, skin and all. Kumquats grow on trees and their natural orange colour contrasts with the deep green colour of the leaves. Three years after planting a kumquat tree, it is ready for the first harvest. The kumquat tree is always green and can have 3 different kumquat growth stages at the same time. One tree can have flowers, green unripe kumquats and ripe orange kumquats. Kumquats are picked when they are bright orange and large enough. The fruits are carefully picked by hand, one by one. After this, the picked fruits are packed into 15 kg plastic crates to be transported to the packhouse. There the kumquats are re-cooled to a temperature between 15 and 20 ° C. Then the kumquats are washed and sorted. Finally, the kumquats are transported in 2 kg boxes to Nature's Pride.
