I am still not 100% sure. Some say, Sunquat and Lemonquat are the same, others they are a bit different. So Sunquat seed is welcome as well.

Sunquat is an open pollinated cross between Satsuma and Kumquat.
It was found in Jamisonís PYO Citrus Orchard in Pearland Texas.


I was good friends with the guy who found it and grew it, Louis Walden of Brookside Village, Tx.
He recently passed away.

Sunquat fruit is slightly smaller than a tennis ball, rind is edible like a kumquat, fruit bears on ends of branches.

Unfortunately I didnít cover my very large Sunquat in the Texas Feb 2021 freeze and it froze to the ground. It was a seedling and is coming back.

Could you describe the taste of rind and flesh?

Rind tastes like Meiwa Kumquat rind.

Flesh is very juicy, good balance of sugar and acid tending to be tart.
Very refreshing when it is hot.
Fruit does not segment, usually eaten as a whole fruit in bites or sliced in half.

So, the rind has not lemony flavor?

Yes, only the juice has a significant lemon taste.  The rind is rather bland
