Eriobotrya japonica

Loquat
This tree grows 15 to 30 feet tall and is supposedly hardy here. The pink flowers smell funny- a group of people at the nursery discussed this:

“It smells like root beer.”
“No, like medicinal bubble gum, like a dentist’s office.”
“It’s nice.”
“No, bad!”
“Yeah!”
“You don’t have to agree!”

Anyway, it has thick, evergreen leaves and small orange fruits that have been compared to a mild flavored nectarine.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
