Its about this time of year that I start to eat may way around the garden. The fruit trees are well on there way and all the family (and friends, and neighbors) are waiting for there first pickings. I'll let you have a sneak peek at one of my favorites!!!
Its a Loquat Tree.
This Fruit is delicious!! You'll be hard pressed to find it in any stores because once the fruit has been picked, it must be eaten fresh due to spoiling.
So how do you eat them?
Peal the skin like so.....
Then bite into it watching out for the pip...Warning...Do not chew the pip, best to just spit the bugger out!!!
What does it taste like? Sweet, its almost a cross between a apricot and a pear, very hard to explain, if you see one just have a go...nick it from over your neighbors fence...it's worth the risk in getting caught!!
Oh...and dirty gardening hards are essential to the dining experience!!
