I was hanging out the laundry and I noticed my neighbor's Shesek (loquat) tree, dropping rotten fruit. Their tree is taller and larger than ours, and the fruit on it gets a lot more sun. So I wasn't surprised that theirs was overripe. (I do find it sad that they have about 12 fruit trees in their yard and really don't harvest them. I haven't yet asked them if we can take their fruit - how silly am I?)
So I checked in on ours, and discovered that some of it is ripe. So we harvested the ones we could reach with our ladder (there's a whole bunch that's too high for us, very sad. Any ideas how we can get it down without a) hiring someone b) buying a new ladder or c) damaging the tree?).
They are delicious.
