I love loquats. Too bad I can't buy them where we live. But I can remember the deliciously juicy taste from my childhood.
I have and I quite like them. They are not a fruit I'd go out of my way to buy. I'm lucky to have a friend who gifts us some from her tree.
We have a huge loquat tree growing nearby - we eat the fruit if the bats don't get them first. The boiled leaves are good for coughs in Chinese Medicine.

Sadly I haven't :(
I think this spring and summer, I want to try a few more interesting foods.

It's time!
Oh! jonaj......I see star fruit, mangosteen, dragon fruit, durian.........exotic Asian fruits I would enjoy eating on my many trips to there!

I've cumquat, & star fruit trees in backyard, as house previously owned by Chinese family.

No I Haven't. Have never even seen them for sale in fruit shops here.
I have never heard of loquats.

No, I actually didnt know you could just eat them, I thought they were only for jam.

They are too fiddly to eat and too fiddly for me to make jam out of them, so I have not eaten them.

I love loquats. There is a lot of stone compared to flesh but when they are ripe they are sweet and lovely. I had never seen them for sale in fruit shops. In Sydney everyone seemed to have one in their backyard along with the frangipani and the choko vine. Wherever a house had been pulled down there was always a loquat tree still standing. Quinces seem to be going the same way - out of fashion.
Luv 'em! My Mum used to make both loquat & cumquat jam. (Not together!). Both are beautiful!
No, I have never tried them. I probably should, then if I don't like them, at least I can say I tried them.
Yes - I really enjoy them. There was a tree on the walk home from where I once worked; I loved raiding the tree and taking them home. As Fran said, there's a lot of stone but it's worth it.
