Kumquat

This native Chinese fruit is no bigger than an olive, which makes them especially fun for eating on-the-go. Unlike other citruses, the peel is actually sweet, while the flesh is quite tart, so you'll want to pop the whole bite-sized orb in your mouth, skin and all.

Eating the peel also provides a host of health benefits, including antioxidants and plant compounds that can boost your immune system. Their small size makes them ideal for chutney, marmalades, condiments or candied on top of an orange cheesecake.
