About the size of an apricot and fragile, the Loquat, has a creamy-orange almost golden thin downy skin that bruises easily. The flesh is tender and juicy with a delectable crisp-firm texture.
The texture suggests a cherry and plum crossed with lychee. It has a delightful balance of sweetly acidic fruity-floral flavor. It is suprisingly juicy and tender with a slight honey taste. Loquats make great snacks, and can be used in fruit salads, pies, jellies, and jams.
