The citrangequat is a trigeneric citrus hybrid of a citrange and a kumquat, developed by Dr. Walter Swingle at Eustis, Florida, in 1909.[1] Citrangequats are bitter in taste, but are considered edible by some at the peak of their maturity. Three named cultivars exist:

  • Sinton – ‘Nagami’ kumquat X ‘Rusk’ citrange; named for the city of Sinton, Texas
  • Telfair – ‘Nagami’ kumquat and ‘Willits’ citrange; named for Telfair County, Georgia
  • Thomasville – most common citrangequat; named for the city of Thomasville, Georgia[2]
