Not sure as i have never tasted another but these were very good in my mind. Only sweet, no sour or tart taste. Surprisingly juicy, i'd say about as juicy as a ripe peach, obviously with much less flesh lol. Interestingly enough, we were walking through the nursery where we bought this loquat, and they were potting up(sold) the last one of the same shipment, and it had maybe 3 or 4 fruit on it; they were about twice as large, but were very oblong, more oblong than an egg even. We did not thin any of our fruits, which probably was one factor for the small size, but also the indoor amount of light vs if it was outdoors was probably the second biggest impact. I wonder though if yehuda fruits are normally round or oblong.
