My Limequat tree is crazy. This little tree I planted 2 years ago produces lots and lots of fruit all the time, non-stop. I need to find a good way to use the fruit. I was thinking about making a marmalade with jalapeno peppers in it for a little zing. This tree is very hardy and is tolerant to my murderous pruning. Does any one out there have any recipe suggestions and have you seen this plant used in Mexico. I would really like to have a few down there when we move.


  1. Well, I just made limoncello from the Myer limes that grow in profusion in California. I don't know why you couldn't make something similar from limequats. There are plenty of limoncello recipes on the internet. You may want to hire someone to help you peel the little devils. Also, the end result is very strong fire water so be careful

  2. I have never even heard of one, do you think you can smuggle me some seeds down when you come?

  3. Hey Teresa:
    I sure will, but from what I think I know about this plant is that it is a graft between and lime and a comquat. Not sure if the seeds will reproduce. I found a recipe for limequat marmalade so I think I will try that today and just add a jalapeno and see how turns out.
