Loquat?

I couldn't figure out what was being mixed to make a loquat so I looked it up. Come to find out that nothing is mixed. It's not even a citrus fruit.
Like the kumquat the ending "quat" is a descriptive chinese reference to it's resemblance to an orange.
loquat "reed orange"
kumquat "golden orange"
