In April and May, you can see beautiful green trees strewn with bright orange oval fruits everywhere in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. As soon as the fruit acquires a golden color, 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.

Loquat is eaten fresh and some people also prepare jam, wine, juices, desserts, salsa, and much more. Leaves of loquat are used as a tea to improve digestion. Some residents use loquat seeds instead of coffee. You can prepare a delicious citrus liqueur from the loquat peel.
