Mystery Tree

We have this beautiful and very interesting fruit tree (possibly two of them, actually) on the side of our new house. It offers some nice shade, helps keep the house cool and looks almost tropical. Any guesses as to what it might be? ;)


  1. That's a loquat. The fruit is quite yummy. There's a pit inside, but you eat the flesh around it. Pick the fruit when it's soft. Should be anytime now depending on which variety that is.

  2. Yeah, we had to loquats. They drop lots of fruit and leaves, loved by rats and ants. The wood is sweet, might be good for smoking meat.
