Loquat

The loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) is a species of flowering plant in the family Rosaceae, native to southern China south to northern Thailand. It has been known by many names under different cultural climates, but should not be confused with other plants that are also known as loquat. Within the genus Eriobotrya, it belongs to the subgenus Eriobotrya. It is the only member of this subgenus that is grown for agricultural production. While the species has many common names in English (loquat, Japanese medlar or loquat tree) and some use loquat as the common name, most references prefer to call it by the scientific name "Eriobotrya japonica." If unripe, the whole fruit has a crunchy texture and mildly bitter flavor. As it ripens, the flesh softens until completely ripe when it is sweet and full of juice. The peel is somewhat tough and inedible even when very ripe; it can be eaten by wrapping pieces of roasted loquat in corn husks or tortillas. The loquat tree is large, evergreen, and fast-growing, capable of reaching 6–10 meters (19–33 ft) in height. The leaves are alternately arranged, simple ovate-lanceolate, 4–9 centimeters (1.6–3.5 in) long and 2–4 centimeters (0.79–1.57 in) broad, with an entire or weakly dentate margin; they are reddish-green when young, maturing dark green and glossy; the petiole is 0.5–3 centimeters (0.20–1.18 in). The flowers are produced from the leaf axils, singly or in clusters of up to three on the shoots of the previous year's growth; they are white, 2 centimeters (0.79 in) diameter, with six petals and six stamens; flowering is in spring. The fruit is a large berry containing numerous seeds; it is yellow, orange, or red-streaked and ripens in late spring and early summer, depending on the cultivar. The skin turns yellow as it matures; the flesh, yellow to deep pink or purple, has a sweetly tart flavor that is usually very pronounced in commercially produced fruit with little acid. The fruit is most often eaten out-of-hand or squeezed for its juice. It can be stored in the refrigerator for about two weeks when ripe. The fruit can also be used in cooking, baking, making jam and chutney, or dried as a raisin. Loquat leaf tea has been commonly consumed in China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Vietnam for centuries.
