Yeah, I just passed through that area the other day. Was in Charleston and the loquats there were looking good, some ripe most not.

I think I'll just hold off until my own fruit are ready to work with. Have so many trees but they are the tallest I've ever seen and hard to harvest. They've been reaching beyond all our live oaks to get some sun. My dog on the otter hand has had her fill this season with all the ones that've dropped to the ground. Been doing her part to spread some seed!

I want to try this recipe. My neighbors have a large loquat tree that overhangs in my yard. Therefore I get x amount of loquats every season.. lol

I'm going to plant a couple seeds this year so hopefully I can grow one of my own, soon. This year I only got a couple dozen or so before the squirrels got to the rest of them so maybe next year.

You could plant a seed on the moon and it'll prolly grow! We do" thin the herd" every fall, gotta keep em in check. There are also two different families of owls, two hawks, and a falcon nearby to help out. Do your neighbors let you pick from their yard? My friends yard smells like a distillery if we don't pick it clean and it attracts flies and hornets.

I'm going to make a batch of something like this this weekend. The fruit is coming around in the neighbors yard and plenty to be had on my side of the fence, so I should use it since they don't even touch them. I was thinking about asking if I could go into their yards to get to them because it seems such a shame to waste such delicious fruit. My method will differ slightly in that I plan on juicing the loquats with my steam juicer, testing the SG, then adding sugar from there depending on what I want. Gotta go pick up some acid blend tomorrow and maybe some energizer and I'll be ready to go. Already picked 6 pounds in 10 minutes, which should be almost enough juice to get a gallon fermenting. I plan on picking as many as I can anyway and then just freezing the juice. On another note, the apple tree is already starting to look really good. More graff is in the future... perhaps loquat apple graff?

Hell yeah, good call on the juicing. the wieght may vary though because the seeds are fairly large and they have alot of pulp. I have a couple batches going now, a couple huge bags in the freezer, and a tree to finish picking. Love this time of year, bleuberries are next! awwww yeah, bleuberry mead up in this...
