loquat fruit


Our backyard neighbor had a mature loquat tree. It was about 12 feet tall and 9 feet wide. During the spring thousands of blossoms would flower. Hundreds of bees would swarm. My poor cherry tree flowered at the same time and scarcely a bee would move the 3 feet from the loquat tree to the cherry tree. The loquat fruits were very popular with squirrels.

I let the loquat tree branches grow over out 8 foot tall stucco fence into our yard. Su loquat es mi loquat.

My brother Adam, of T&A Farm, makes a loquat preserve.
