Have you tried loquat? I first heard the name of it in Japanese (Biwa). I was like, “What’s that?” I then heard the name in English (loquat) and still asked, “What’s that?” Lol!
I certainly didn’t grow up eating this fruit and so I was excited to try it. The first time I did, I had to have several as the flesh of the fruit was just a bit to cover a fairly big seed. The taste wasn’t characteristic. I’d describe it as “delicate”, not sweet, not sour.
This parfait wasn’t only beautiful but the loquats were 2-3 times bigger than the ones I’m now accustomed to seeing.
What a delight. 😃
