Kucle is the product of the crossing of Fortunella margarita (kumquat) and Citrus clementina (clementine). This vigorous and highly decorative shrub offers an abundance of kumquat-like fruit, though slightly larger, with a deliciously acidic flavor and a clementine aftertaste. Like kumquat, it is consumed with the skin. Cold-resistant to -4 ° C, its open-air culture is reserved for regions with very mild climate; Elsewhere, it will preferably be grown in a large bin, wintered in the shelter of a frost in a greenhouse.
Kucle forms a compact, thornless shrub of the family Rutaceae. It reaches a height of about 3 m.
