Kumquat fruits sale

We celebrated the start of the Year of the Dragon with a special Kumquat fruits sale organised by the School Council. Kumquats look like miniature oranges and the children showed lots of interest in their particular colour and elongated shape. Their name comes from the Cantonese, kam kwat, meaning 'golden orange'. The flesh of a kumquat has a sharp flavour, while the skin is sweeter. The two different flavours complement each other well and make a sweet-sour sensation when eaten whole.

Well done to the many adventurous children who tried this exotic fruit for the first time and thank you to those who came back for more and to tell us how much they enjoyed them!
