Shesek...


The most delicious fruit on the planet. It's smaller than an apple, but bigger than a grape, and orangy colored. It has between 2 and 5 pits inside. It tastes sweet and slightly tart and is very juicy. The dictionary translations are loquat or medlar, not that it helps. Try some. They come in containers and are sold by the kilo in Israel.

Actually, it looks like a qumquat. I'm sure I'm spelling it wrong. I believe we got them at the Hadera Flower Show during the 1988 Pesach vacation. Remember? They look like tiny oranges.

No, the skin is fuzzy like a peach, actually.
