Loquat

It’s supposed to be autumn and I should be harvesting persimmons and pomegranates but their new leaves are being mown continuously by the possums so they don’t get to flower, let alone fruit.  I think I may have to replace them.

So imagine my surprise to see the loquat being unmolested.  It’s fruiting for the first time and I can’t wait to taste them.  I know they will remind me of Istanbul as they were in season and the first fruit I bought when I was there.

There are plenty of flowers too so as long as the temperature remains unusually warm here, I can expect a bumper crop

    The name sounds vaguely experience, but I don’t think I have seen them in markets in Maine. They are certainly note native ;) So hard to describe the flavor of a fruit.
