Loquat is quite minor fruit but one of main product in Awaji Island.
Now, we are having loquat season (END/MAY-END/JUN) and you can find loquat tour (eat as much as you want from tree ) especially North part island.
North Awaji Island is known as Japanese Loquat birth place and you can find so many Loquat farmer even from road side.

Beside of the loquat farm, we can find WILD LOQUAT tree if you carefully looked at while you riding bike.
My home training course, HANASAZIKI (Flower view point on top of mountain) round course has so many wild loquat tree, on road side.Not same as farm made one, wild loquat is so sour but tasty. And good refresh for your ride, I guarantee.
The Hanasaziki round course is 18km, 330m elevation and take 40min around.Not only wild loquat but also you can enjoy great view.
