The loquat fruit that adds tart flavor to this savory and spicy dish. "Loquats are a seasonal fruit," says dalcazar. "Late spring to early summer is the only time you can find them. They pair very well with rice. If you have a loquat tree in your back yard or know someone who does, you'll be trying to find something to do with them. This recipe would work well with pork too. "
