The Loquats are here...
















Once a year, for about two weeks, the dark green loquat tree in the back yard explodes with thousands of yellow-orange fruits. About the size of a teardrop-shaped golf ball. Their flavor and consistency might be described as the point where a peach meets a grape. They are extremely sweet with a sour skin and the pits (or pit, sometimes just one) are beautiful - like small brown polished stones. Don't know if you can get these at your local grocer, but my year would be incomplete without them.
