I have no idea; I hope someone can help. You can always let it grow and find out.

Looks like Biwa (Loquat in English).

My Loquats make quite different looking seeds. Are there other varieties in Japan?

DD#1 agrees with you, its not Biwa. She recognizes the seed and remembers a tree with big flat leaves. Maybe it will pop into her head. Smiling
