Description:  The loquat is a large shrub or tree that is grown for its orange fruit and for its leaves for tea. The fruit begins to ripen during spring to summer depending on the temperature in the area. Loquat fruits, growing in clusters, are oval, rounded or pear-shaped with a smooth or downy, yellow or orange, sometimes red-blushed skin. The succulent, tangy flesh is white, yellow or orange and sweet to subacid or acid. The fruits are the sweetest when soft and orange. The flavour is a mixture of peach, citrus and mild mango.
