Looks like kumquats. They have thin edible skin that is sweet -- you eat the fruit whole, skin and all.

You can also make kumquat infused honey by pouring boiling water over while kumquats in a colander, then filling a jar with them and covering with honey. Delicious in tea and said to be great for sore throat remedy.

The kumquat fruit is sour and the skin is sweet. It is good if it is candied or made into jam. Usually I eat the skin and throw away the fruit.

When I tried to find some info of this fruit on the internet I finded Kumquats ( I find it most simmilar to this ) but I reject that because description did not match (at least I was think that until I taste it again now and found it somekind salty (special if you eat them with skin).


Thank you for a quick answer ;)
