The kumquat is an orange dwarf originating in the Far East (its name comes from the Cantonese word Kam Quat meaning orange gold). Also called in Latin "Fortunela" bearer of good fortune to the lucky ones who receive kumquats as gift, as it is the tradition in the Far East. It is the symbol of happiness, prosperity and luck. It is one of those foods that make us happy.
Under the sun of Andalusia, between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, on the Straits of Gibraltar, facing Africa, the kumquat farm "Rio Jara" enjoys a microclimate ideal for growing this little citrus still unknown, and yet with multiple virtues.
Unlike other citrus, the kumquat is eaten with the skin . For this reason,we have chosen not to apply any treatment. LMR (Least Minimum Residue ) analysis prove to each delivery that our fruits are free from any foreign substance. They go as such from tree directly to the consumers.
Biojara's marmelades won the 2015 bronze medal during the biggest international competition of marmelades in Dalemain, in England.
The plantation and the packaging of our fruits are certified by the serious label "Global G.A.P.".
