Funny from HD 'plant expert'
Every year our local HD and Lowes get in a shipment of grafted Loquat trees from LaVerne nursery. yesterday I found some Dragon Fruit from LaVerne at my local HD when I went there for picking up something else, so, I grabbed it and asked the nursery person when they would get the Loquat trees from LaVerne. She called in a "plant expert" from inside - who turned out to be a young lady barely out of her teens - she did not know anything about Loquats and after i proceeded to spell the word out to her she told me that I could instead buy a "Kumquat" as they had them in stock and they sounded similar, so should taste similar! I just left, for if i had stayed i would not have been able to control my laughter.
