13/April/2017 - Loquats

Why don't Americans eat loquats?

During his lunch break Grump went for a walk, taking pics as he came across interesting or pretty sites.

Just outside a restaurant in downtown Columbus, he came across a loquat tree.  The tree had many ripe fruits on it, including some that had been left just to rot.

Why don't Americans eat loquats?  We plant the tree for ornamental purposes only; I suppose most people consider the yummy fruits a nuisance that they have to clean up once they fall to the ground.

I wish edible landscaping was more popular in this country.  Why waste all this time, effort, and money on a sterile green lawn, when we could be using our yards to create something useful?
