Lemonquat

Last year we bought a lemonquat - a citrus tree that is a hybrid of a lemon and a kumquat. We've been anxiously awaiting the ripening of the fruit and last week picked our first ones. Trey was very disappointed; he thinks they taste like lemons with a bitter aftertaste. I really like them. I think they taste like very sour lemons but I don't taste the aftertaste. There are two more ready to be picked today. I like having them around to add to my water. I've really become a fan of water with lemons - which is not equal to water with limes - though many Tex-Mex restaurants think they are equal and will serve water with limes when lemons are requested.

Never had a lemonquat, but I agree about limes in water!

So that is like really weak lemonaid?

We had a lemon tree in our back yard in San Diego when I grew up. It has produced loads of giant delicious lemons for years. We would pick a bunch and make fresh squeezed lemonaid whenever we wanted.

No sweet so not like lemonaid - just a little flavor in the water.

Your lemon tree sounds wonderful. What a neat thing for you to have growing up.

Are you picking the fruit while it is still green or waiting until it turns orange? My cousin in Porter, Texas has one and has picked fruit for about 3 or 4 years now and they are sweet. He just brought me one here in Shallotte, NC....I hope it does well here.

I have a sunquat or lemonquat and have enjoyed it's delicious, sweet, lemony fruit for 6 years. I make marmalade and preserve them with olive oil and herbs...delish !!! I have friends who want one but we can't find them in South Carolina. Please post where you found them. I bought mine at Lowes, but no more.

Interesting post... Looks like solid state memory is finally beginning to take off. Hopefully we'll start seeing a drop in SSD prices in the near future. Five dollar 32 GB Micro SDs for your Nintendo DS flash card... sounds good to me!

And Ι do have 2 questiοns for yоu if you don't mind. Is it only me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks look like written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of your social pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
