Pipa!

Pipa (枇杷) are soft, sweet apricot coloured fruit that bruise easily and appear for a few weeks in the spring. These are the first I have seen this year. During the fruit's short season the fruit sellers display huge boxes of pipa at the very front of the store, then it is gone as soon as it has arrived. English name is 'loquat'.
