Are they supposed to be so nasty?! I just bought a few to try, but oh my gosh, they're awful - they're nice and orange, so it's not like they aren't ripe, but oy vey! Is there anything else I can use them for instead of trying to eat them plain? I really don't want to waste them.

  • I love kumquats. Can't help you we use to eat them right off of the tree. They might not be ripe enough yet. We always waited until they were not so firm but a little squishy if that makes any sense.

  • They aren't terribly firm - they're not rotting-squishy, but they're not hard - I'd say they're definitely ripe enough without being over-ripe - like an orange, lol. Are they an acquired taste, do you (melbornj) do anything with them besides eat them straight?
