Loquat fruit grow in clusters, are oval, rounded or pear shaped 3-5cm long with a smooth or downy yellow or orange sometimes red-blushed skin. Each fruit contains up to 5 large brown smooth seeds. The fruits are sweetest when soft and orange. The flavour is a mix of peach, citrus and mango. Fruits are available October and November. Loquat Chutney is a best seller. It is sweet, yet goes with everything - superb with lamb, ham, chicken. cheese. This chutney is definitely our family favourite.
