PSA: Loquat session in full swing



All the loquat trees around town are loaded with fruit. If you’re in Florida, look for trees.

They’re really a hidden treasure. They grow like weeds and the flowers are unattractive, so most people ignore the fruit on them. They’re delicious, though, like sweet apricots. There are several varieties around town that I’ve gotten to try, and I found out the fuzzier the average fruit on the tree, the sweeter it is (kind of like peaches and nectarines). Also, the more orange the fruit, the sweeter it is, too.
