A tasty bittersweet cross between the lime and the kumquat, extremely juicy, and less sour than the lime, ideal for cockctails, sauces, marmalades, and chutneys. The skin is very aromatic, and the limequat can be eaten as a whole.
The lemon caviar is the real star at the top of the gastronomy. Made up of small grains similar to the caviar, they explode in the palace, with an astonishing feeling of freshness. A few grains of lemon caviar on a fish, seafoods, sushi or sashimi will work wonders. Also add some in your gin tonic!
