In April and May, you can see beautiful green trees strewn with bright orange oval fruits everywhere in Los Angeles. As soon as the fruit acquires a golden colour, it can be harvested. This is a kind of citrus tree which is called loquat. It is sweet and sour, reminiscent of apricot, apple, and strawberry.
