This tree is on the back boundary of our neighbour’s property and he no longer lives there. Our daughter, while she was visiting us last week, noticed a similar tree on the nature strip on our house street and asked what type of tree it was. I had sussed this out the previous year and found out that it was a loquat tree. I have never eaten loquats before but our daughter thought it would be worth a try. She got on to Pinterest
and found many recipes using loquats and we decided to give loquat crumble a try. The recipe comes from the website The Domestic Front.
We forgot to take pictures as we were assembling the crumble until it was ready to go into the oven.
The cooked crumble was delicious and it is a taste that I really like. It is difficult to describe but it is sort of like a mix of rhubarb and apple. There is tartness to it but it was also sweet. The texture is similar to pear.
Loquat dacquiri sounds like a good idea. 🙂
