The Calamondin is not a true kumquat though this is what it is commonly called; it's also known by the name Calamansi. It's very popular throughout Asia - in particular the Philippines - and is used widely in cooking from soups, refreshing drinks, liqueurs, and preserves. Depending on the area it is grown the fruit colour can vary from greenish-yellow through to yellowish-orange. The fruit has a truly distinctive sour flavour and is a gorgeous tree to grow in a pot or in the garden.
