The loquats around my home are starting to ripen now. About 5 trees on my street so I have started picking them. Currently have 6 pounds of seeded fruit in the freezer. I'm thinking of doing 20 pounds seeded fruit for a 3 gallon batch. Haven't settled on recipe yet just gathering the fruit first. One thing I did notice is the fruits quite tart even though it's full orange and ripe to the touch. Is this normal or should I pick the remainder when they are getting black spots on them and are super ripe. Only problem then is beating the damn birds.
