High on a steep, terraced mountainside in Malibu, with a spectacular view of the Pacific, perches the largest and probably the only commercial planting of loquats in the United States. A pome fruit related to apples and pears, the loquat is one of the great pleasures of spring in Southern California. It has firm but juicy flesh with the texture of cantaloupe and a sweet-tart flavor evoking cherry. The irony is that it is so well-adapted and common as a backyard tree that there's little local demand for the fruit.

Re "Edge may get his Malibu mansions," June 16 Money is power for better or worse, and U2 guitarist the Edge has the money to build his dream house - or rather, five houses - coastal protections be damned. His lobbyists are pushing legislation to undermine the California Coastal Act while denying it has any connection to the Edge, although it happens to mirror his lawsuit against the Coastal Commission. Contrast this with how his bandmate, Bono, has used his money to help the world's downtrodden, earning him a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Here in the land of cars, parking spaces are scarce and sought-after. Nowhere is that more true than in the popular communities along the coast, where tension is common between the visitors drawn to the beach and the residents who live there. Malibu, in particular, is notorious as a place where some locals obscure public accessways to the beach and put up fake "No Parking" signs and orange traffic cones curbside to discourage visitors from parking. And Malibu's latest move is unlikely to dispel the "no trespassers" vibe that sometimes emanates from its shores: Volunteers are being empowered to hand out parking tickets with fines of $50 to $75 attached.

Well, this is awkward. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her musician husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay, bought a house in Malibu for $14 million, then they turned around and announced their "conscious uncoupling. " Uncoupling papers will no doubt eventually reveal who gets the John Lautner-designed home, which is set on a secluded acre of land and surrounded by tropical landscaping. The forward-thinking architect designed such structures as the octagonal Chemosphere house in Los Angeles and the poured-concrete Elrod Residence in Palm Springs.
