Bestie and her sister made Loquat jam last night and brought me the seeds. Planting them now!! 6-8 years is a long process for Japanese plum parties, so asked if we could graft some branches from her tree to move the Loquat Shenanigans along. The jam is ahhhhhmazzzzzing!! 😍😍#edibles, #loquat
sounds awesome, I tried a loquat for the first time last season and loved them. I didn't want to wait that long either for a tree of my own to produce, so good luck with grafting and lmk how it goes...
@dfresh1433 Ive lived here all my life and used to eat them by the bushel, along with mangoes, at a nursery I worked at when I was a kid. I'm LOVING your posts, and am on the hunt for that Cocktail Foraging book you posted. Keep the pics coming. Love our Florida flora!!
I grew a loquat tree from seed three years ago and I finally got fruit on it this year. My friend gave me a bucket of the plums last year and I made jam too. It was good but it was a lot of work taking the seeds out to make it. I don't think I'll do it again. I may put them in a juicer and make wine next time.
