Loquat tasting on May 22

Early season loquat tasting. Napa Library is the only one that is fully ripe now.  Kando is getting there, and Argelino may need more time.  McBeth seems to be flat.  Will re-taste the latest three in a week or two.
Left to right: Argelino, Kando, McBeth, Napa Library

3. Argelino
4. McBeth
