Walking into the loquat garden, you can often see birds flying over the loquat trees, pecking at the fruit, and many people were looking around under the loquat trees. In the orchard, the fruits hanging low can be picked at hand; the higher ones can also be caught with a leap. In short, no one will come back with nothing. You can wash the fruits nearby and peel off the thin, fluffy skin of the loquats. The surging juice instantly ran down from the fingertips and took a bite. It was warm and soft, sweet and sour, with endless aftertaste.
When the fruits at the low branches has been picked off, you will find that people will use long poles and short sticks at the treetops. Looking at the mature fruit on the loquat trees have fallen, children will be the most excited, holding fresh loquats in their hands. They will smile from ear to ear.
