Young Loquat Tree

(Eriobotrya japonica)

Also called May Apple, Japanese medlar,and/or Japanese plum

The loquat tree [pronounced: "LOH-kwaht"] produces one of the first fruits in the spring season. 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.

Loquat Flowers

Loquat Flowers

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.

These hardy trees will grow in the direct sun or partial 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.

These young loquat trees
are almost 2 years old
and are 2-1/2 feet tall.

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.

This tree is highly prized for its large rich evergreen foliage and its tasty edible fruit which is considered a great delicacy in the Orient. It is closely related to the pear and apple trees...not the citrus tree called "komquat".

Subject to availability
Prices subject to change without notice.
We reserve the right to refuse any request or order.

* 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.
*** 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.

An agreement signed in blue ink must accompany payment. See NOTICE below

***Important Notice***

The loquats, seeds, seedlings, and trees We provide are from certain trees that are a fruit-bearing mixed variety that is common to the San Joaquin Valley of California. The fruit are of good taste, golden yellow color, roundish or oval in shape, and are normally 1" to 1-1/2" in size. The mature leaves vary in size from 6" to 16" long. If grown in partial shade, the leaves are of the larger size.

The availability of the trees at this time is uncertain, depending on size and if reserved. Also, the availability of the seed at this time is uncertain. There has been a demand recently created due to potential use of the leaves for medicinal purposes now in research. However the fruit will be available for sale in the "late-spring early-summer" period.

If We do sell any more trees, fruit, or seed, we would want a signed agreement that states that any fruit, seed, or leaves harvested for commercial use and/or for profit, both now and any time in the future, would be reserved to Us and for Us unless or until We give up that right for specified reasons in writing for those certain specified trees produced from our fruit, seed, seedlings, and/or trees provided by Us. We will pay a reasonable amount for the harvested leaves and/or fruit. The amount to be determined at a later date.

If you are willing to sign such an agreement, then We may have some trees, seedlings, or seed available for you to purchase at this time and fruit when in season. Make a print of the Agreement, sign it in blue or red ink, and send together with payment.
