Nisperos

Nisperos
My walk to classes often involves traipsing through uninspiring (though admittedly strongly-built) housing estates but I do occasionally come across gems such as this nispero tree (Japanese loquat). The fruit is delicious although the large inner pips must not be ingested - posonous! Maybe that is why they aren't often on sale in the UK! They are in season here now and I buy them! They're not too sugary, so fine for an occasional treat for a diabetic like me!

Nor had I till I came to Spain, Rosa!
In season (now), and they are only sold in season (they don't keep or refridgerate well), they are absolutely everywhere!

I've not heard of them either Andy..................they sound quite nice, but I'd be very wary of eating something that has poisonous pips!

A lovely shot sir!

The pips are simply too big to miss and swallow by accident Keith, so they're safe!
I investigated further; they won't kill you but will give you a severe stomach ache if you swallow one!

Oh it's so nice to see fruit growing in peoples' gardens. My daughter has two very large orange/mandarin trees, another fruit tree called "dut" (?) and a huge fig tree. There seems to be melons and tomatoes everywhere too.
