 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. 


Who knew?


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.
