Re: Tepid....citrus

Not too long ago, I was at a friend's house that had Calamondins.  He  asked 
if I wanted some seed.  I told him no, that I already had a  citrofortunella 
that was sour that I use in drinks (Cuba Libre especially),  don't need any 
more sour citrus.  He informed me that I must have been  eating them wrong.  
Picked a fruit and told me to eat it like a  Kumquat.....skin and all.  Of course 
I wrinkled my nose at him, but he said  to go ahead that the skin was very 
thin.   Sure enough.....I'm not  much of a fan of Kumquats anyway, but this was 
actually not bad.  It was  really good.  So I'm seriously thinking of adding it 
to my citrus  trees.  
Jim, are there certain Calamondins, or are they all pretty much like  this.  
Just wondering.

I do not  particularly like 
calamondins, although they make great marmalade and a  nice drink is 
made from the juice with a bit of  sweetener.
