They are an early fruiting plant and once mature, will give you fruit well before Christmas.

Indigenous to China they were originally cultivated in Japan, but now have found popularity all over the world.


A non deciduous tree (doesn't lose its leaves in winter)

They have fruit that is 3-5cm long that is sweet and juicy and tastes like fruit punch.

The fruit is born Spring to early Summer and has many uses such as: fresh fruit, jam, preserves, pies, tarts, relish and cooking. 

If cared for, you will receive your first fruits at around the 3 year mark with an increase in production as they mature.


They will grow to approximately 3-5 metres in height and will produce many kilos of fruit per year once they are establshed.

They are frost resistant and are able to withstand long periods of dry once established.

They can be grown in a wide range of soil conditions and have the ability to thrive in a wide soil ph range.

For optimum fruit production you will need to feed and water in the same way as you would plums, peaches, apples etc.

Beautifully ridged serrated leaves that are lime green  when young and then maturing to deep green, often see this variety grown for its foliage structures as well.

They make great specimens inter planted through gardens as well as growing well in large pots or even as espaliers against a fence or in small gardens.


Will grow in Full sun to semi shade.

The flowers are borne in late Autumn to early Winter and are a sweet scented, five petaled white.

The flowers come in clusters.

Below is some information a lady sent to me concerning loquats after finding this listing on ebay:


Found Loquat Jelly, made like loquat jam but not as sweet + my ex-boyfriend makes Loquat Wine. The wine's the colour of liquid gold, swirls like a liqueur, rolls down the throat warming as it descends & tastes smooth, beautiful & delicious.
He notes 2 get the best from a loquat tree & its fruit, there must b plenty of rain water. His tree gets the run off from the downpipe gutters @ his home. I've seen other loquat trees in his area & all r smaller & less juicy fruit + smaller trees.
The loquat is actually related 2 the apple & pear, which is why it has so many seeds within & when opened 2 view 1 can c the apple & pear seed makeup resemblance.
Loquat seeds r very poisonous & it's imperative no seeds r accidentally included in anything made from the fruit. U may like 2 include this fact in your description details.
I've also found if the tree is cleaned of old twigs & old fruit twigs, the following season will c a bumper crop.

 

The mature tree flowers progressivley for up to 3 months. It is a wonderful nectar source for bees, birds and butterflies at a time when few other plants or trees are in flower.
