Answer: Kumquats are members of the citrus family. The most commonly grown in backyard gardens are 'Marumi', 'Meiwa' and 'Fukushu'. 'Marumi', a slightly thorny plant with round fruit. It has a sweet peel and seedy, slightly acidic flesh. 'Meiwa' has sweeter, juicier and less seedy fruit than other varieties. It's considered best for fresh eating.
