Hi - I just tried some of the loquat fruit (sometimes called japenese plum) from a tree in my new yard. Pretty good! I was wondering if anyone has ever tried eating the nut inside?
Whoa - I just found a web site that says this:
Warning!Do not eat, chew, or swallow the seeds.The loquat seed is highly toxic.Remove the fleshly fruit from the seedbefore eating or cooking.
So don't anyone try it! Thanks, -Dan
