i have this (fruit?) tree that grows in my backyard and am a loss to tell what it is. at first i thought it was from the citris family but now upon closer inspection...it looks more like a tomato. i know this can not be so because it grows on a tree about 10 feet tall. they are green at first and then turn bright orange. they also have a flower type petal at the top of the ? someone please help me identify my plant! i have a picture but am not sure how to get it out!
thank you

Hey Candace,
Just off the top of my head (keep in mind in only 5 ft 2)
it sounds like a pomagranete. I know that's not how to
spell it but it's close. Does it have a hard skin and
small seeds inside?
Hope this helps.
Brenda

The fruit you describe could be a Persimmon but their flowers are almost unnoticeable. What color is the flower? If your picture is digital (jpeg) you could open a free account on Photobucket and direct link it here. After you open the account just copy the direct link and paste it into your post.

We had a Loquat Tree in California, that sounds like what you have. Wife made very good jam out of it. The fruit was mostly seed.

That's definitely a Japanese Persimmon, after it softens, it's very good to eat.
