Biwa Picking


It was a good year for biwas. We made quite  a few trips with friends to our neighboring tree with buckets in hand to pick the small juicy fruit.


The kids were a big help. I spent most of my time holding the ladder for them.


They have no fear of heights and were great at finding the ripest fruit.


The biwas, also known as loquats, are delicious fresh off the tree and that's exactly how the kids enjoyed them.



Even after giving bags and bags away to neighbors and friends I have buckets of fruit in our fridge. Now I just need to get peeling and chopping to make some biwa jam.
