Loquats originated in China and were later introduced to the United States as Japanese plums. They are about the size of an apricot and slightly pear-shaped with yellow-orange skin. The flesh is creamy to orange color, juicy and tender, and contains one or more large seeds. The flavor is a balance between sweet and acid and is reminiscent of cherries, plums and grapes.
