what fruit is this?

    7 responses

billy_t starts with ...
I was given several small trees several years ago and was told they were Kumquats. They grew to about two metres high and are now bearing fruit.But when looking at available information on Kumquats it does not match. Some fruit has up to four large seeds in it! They taste good, but what are they?

That looks like a loquat (eriobotrya japonica)! Much more useful than a kumquat ... but probably equally popular.

That's a loquat tree. Not even close to a citrus tree, so a bit strange they'd say it was kumquat.

I have had people tell me to have a look at their lychee, which turns out to be a loquat, and small fruiting at that. I have gone to look at a tropical pawpaw tree and find it is only a mountain pawpaw. I have had people tell me a tree is a magnolia when it is a cherimoyer. Because it is the first idea that pops into their head it is sometimes hard to convince them when it is really quite obvious.
