You ever seen one of these? I hadn’t.
Then I went in the Sprouts Farmers Market in Culver City and there they were. They’re limequats.
Allow Wikipedia to explain: ‘The limequat is a citrofortunella hybrid that is the result of a cross between the Key lime and the kumquat, hybridized by Walter Tennyson Swingle in 1909.
I was even foolish enough to try eating one whole, since that’s what you do with a kumquat. This was a mistake.
I have never actually tasted battery acid, but I imagine the flavour would be somewhat similar. Perfectly OK in your gin and tonic though.
This is Walter Tennyson Swingle.
