Oh Andy you havent lived! A good loquat is like a cross between an apricot and pineapple absolutely divine.

Christa these newer cvs are so much better than the old loquat trees I picked off as a kid.

Gee Andrew, didn't you climb trees in your school uniform and rob the fruit from branches that hung over the fence, We went to school in Moorooka area and there were Mango trees, loquat trees a few grapes and mandarins all hanging over the boundary.  Some places we asked for permission, and some people even encouraged us to clean up any fallen fruit. We never went home hungry and we didn't notice any grubs in them.  Those were the days.

Doug, that's a nice crop, any near the fence, oh I think you have a dog, shucks.  

Our Bessell Brown loquat are fruiting now too, but our bananas are not getting the food and attention they need.

I don't think I've ever eaten a loquat.
