* Tree may be longer than three-and-one-half feet, but the tips may be cut off to fit in box.   Trimming a tree actually helps in the preservation of the tree and will help promote branching.
** Overnight or 2-day air available at an additional cost.
*** Most loquat trees We provide are usually sent in a triangular shaped box 38" long and measuring 5.5" on each of the three sides.
***
When plants arrive, soak roots immediately in water with vitamin B-1 or some other root stimulator as directed on label for at least 1/2 hour.   Plant right away after soaking.
Don't let the roots dry out. Remove any damaged leaves or stems.
We purposely cut off leaves to keep tree from dehydrating and to encourage new growth. Some new leaf growth may become wilted and possibly die back or some leafs may fall off. Don't be alarmed.   These are very hardy trees and will come out of shock and be thriving plants once again.



The loquat tree [pronounced: "LOH-kwaht"] produces one of the first fruits in the spring season.   The tree sets out flowers during the winter months (photo at right). The tartly sweet, aromatic 1 1/2" golden-yellow to orange fruit that resembles an apricot in size and color usually ripen in mid to late spring.   The juicy, crisp flesh is pale yellow and has a delicate, sweetly tart cherry-like or pear-like flavor. It surrounds 1 to 3 seeds that are about the size of apricot pits.   The seeds are smooth and rounded but somewhat flatted on one or two sides.   The yellow fleshy edible fruits are eaten raw, cooked, or made into jelly.

Having your own Loquat tree is like all inclusive deals in that you not only have a beautiful evergreen tree but you get the fruit for sustenance, the leaves for tea, and the pits to improve health.



This large evergreen shrub or tree that grows to about 20 feet tall and 10 feet wide in about 10 years originated in China.   The leaves are usually 6 to 12 inches long, 2 to 4 inches wide, look and feel leathery and somewhat veiny, and have sawtooth edges.   They are dark green on top and the undersides are covered with a lightly dusted tan fuzz. The groups of 6 to 8 inch clusters of small, fragrant, creamy white flowers usually bloom in the late fall or early winter.

Although these hardy trees prefer to grow in the direct sun like that of cancun mexico, they will also do well in partial shade and sometimes in full shade. .   They grow well on a variety of soils from light sandy loam to heavy clay and even limestone soils, but will not tolerate standing water.   The trees prefer good drainage and or well-drained moist soil.   Most loquat trees are drought tolerant, but will produce better quality fruit with regular, deep watering.

Well established trees can tolerate temperatures as low as 12 F.   Flower buds may die at temperatures below 19 F.   Flowers do well down to temperatures of 26 F.   Temperatures below 25 F can kill the seed, which may cause the fruit to eventually fall.   Extreme summer heat (above 105 F) can be detrimental to the crop.   Dry, hot winds (100 F and above) can cause leaf scorch.



Young loquat Tree Young Loquat Tree

The young loquat tree on the left is about 2.5 years old, 2.5-foot tall, and is starting to put out branches. The tree on the right is about the same height but is 3 years old. It started branching out early in age due to tip broken off.
Therefore the branches are lower to the ground.
Loquat Trees with snow on leaves

Young loquat tree with snow on leaves.
The snow melted in a couple of days
and brought no harm to the tree.
This tree is one of the largest loquat trees in the Fresno area. It was planted in the 1940's and is 60 plus years old. It is more than 30 feet tall and is well rounded. The bottom of the tree is trimmed so that people can walk under it. Cluster of fruit Loquat trees are highly prized for their large rich evergreen foliage and their tasty edible fruit which is considered a great delicacy in the Orient. Loquat trees are closely related to the pear and apple trees ...not the citrus tree called "komquat".
Adult Loquat Tree

This Adult loquat tree is about 20 years old.
It has never been trimmed to shape.


This tree from the Rosaceae family is not only grown for its fruit, but it can also provide an all-year-round privacy screen around any estate.   This is accomplished by simply planting many of these trees around a border of land at approximately 8 to 10 feet apart.
Cluster of fruit
In California, the ripening of the fruit called "loquats" begins in May and ends before July.

Loquat trees can be planted for their specimen quality or as a lovely accent plant in any landscape setting.   The tree can be cut and shaped as desired or just have the lower branches cut and trimmed to form a tree-like canopy.


Or you can grow your own loquat trees from seed
