A Loquat By Any Other Name…

I’m thinking most folks in #SHeights & #Tampa are confusing kumquats with loquats. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LoquatTue Mar 29 22:14:07 via Kiwi

that I’m guessing folks in Seminole Heights and Tampa might be confusing kumquats with loquats. Why? It’s a little late for citrus in general. Also, my native ass says kumquats are an even earlier citrus. Also, they look similar (not really). Taste: no comparison. A super ripe loquat to me is a cross between a mango and peach. And heaven. Relish the wild loquats our fore fathers planted and the birds have spread Ybor and Seminole Heights neighbors. They are a treat.
