The loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) is a species of floweringplant in the family Rosaceae, a native to the cooler hill regions of China tosouth-central China. It is also quite common in Japan, Korea, and some can befound in some Northern part of the Philippines, and hill country in Sri Lanka
Itis a large evergreen shrub or tree, grown commerciallyfor its yellow fruit, and also cultivated as an ornamentalplant.
Eriobotryajaponica was formerly thoughtto be closely related to the genus Mespilus,and is still sometimes known as the Japanesemedlar. It is also known as Japaneseplum and Chinese plum, also known as pipa in China.
Loquats are unusual among fruittrees in that the flowers appear in the autumn or earlywinter, and the fruits are ripe at any time from early spring to early summer. Theflowers are 2 cm (1 in) in diameter, white, with five petals, andproduced in stiff panicles ofthree to ten flowers. The flowers have a sweet, heady aroma that can be smelledfrom a distance.
Loquatfruits, growing in clusters, are oval, rounded or pear-shaped, 3–5 centimetres(1–2 in) long, with a smooth or downy, yellow or orange, sometimes red-blushedskin. The succulent, tangy flesh is white, yellow or orange and sweet tosubacid or acid, depending on the cultivar.
Eachfruit contains from one to ten ovules, with three to five being most common. Avariable number of the ovules mature into large brown seeds. The skin, thoughthin, can be peeled off manually if the fruit is ripe. In Egypt varieties withsweeter fruits and fewer seeds are often grafted on inferior quality specimens.
Thefruits are the sweetest when soft and orange. The flavor is a mixture of peach,citrus and mild mango.
