Loquats grow on trees in clusters of 4-30. They can be smooth or fuzzy, yellow to yellow-orange, and round, oval, or pear-shaped. The flesh texture of a Loquat is smooth and firm, similar to an apricot, with a moderately thick skin reminiscent to a peach. The juicy Loquats flavor starts with a slightly sour and tannic forward and mellows into a lightly sweet and delicate grape finish.
