LOQUATS APRIL 2011

 

Look at how the Loquats are turning yellow.They still aren’t ripe.Their beautiful color can be deceiving– tempting you to pick them (they are still tart) before they’ve turned sugar sweet.This weekend my DH built the “keep the birds the heck out of here” loquat enclosure.It took lots of bird netting which is so difficult to work with.Now that it’s up we can patiently wait for the fruit to ripen naturally.It shouldn’t be too long,the temps are in the 90’s.There’s a video of the Loquat Enclosure–wouldn’t you know the neighbors would have the chain saw going.The three varieties of loquats are McBeth,Advanced and Gold Nugget.Please view the pictures with the PicLens for better quality and to see all the photos.
