Our cherry tree is producing like mad so my mom bought some cherries over to our neighbors. They also have a fruit tree that is ready for the picking. My mom brought over a handful of the fruit and then we looked it up on Wikipedia to find out what exactly a loquat is. I thought it was going to be similar to a kumquat or a hybrid or something. It wasn’t.


They have a texture kind of like a cross between a cherry and an apricot. Inside they have three or four big seeds that have to be removed. They’re sweet and delicious. My neighbors don’t like them and I think they’re crazy. I can sort of understand. They’re really small and a bit of work for not a lot of fruit but I think they’re well worth it.

You can read more about them here and I highly recommend eating them if you can find them!
