Fruitscaping™ with Loquat Trees

Invite a tropical paradise into your landscape with Fruitscaping™ using our Loquat Trees. These easy-to-grow trees offer lush, evergreen foliage and unique, tangy-sweet fruits, adding both aesthetic appeal and a taste of the exotic to your home garden.

Loquat Trees are prized for their attractive, glossy foliage, which adds an all-year-round green canopy to your garden. The delightful contrast between their dark green leaves and clusters of white, fragrant flowers, followed by bright orange fruit, creates an eye-catching display.

When it comes to fruit production, Loquats are truly a treasure. The round to oval-shaped fruits boast a sweet, slightly acidic flavor that’s somewhat a blend of peach, citrus, and mild mango – an absolute treat when picked and enjoyed fresh from the tree. You can also transform them into jams, jellies, or desserts, adding a twist to your culinary endeavors.

Loquat Trees are versatile and relatively low maintenance. They prefer well-draining soil and full to partial sun. They are drought-tolerant once established, although regular watering will reward you with a more vigorous tree and a generous fruit crop. A yearly application of balanced fertilizer can also boost your tree’s productivity and growth.

With their inviting canopies and delicious fruits, Loquat Trees make a stunning standalone statement. Still, they can also be incorporated into mixed plantings alongside other fruiting trees and shrubs. Consider planting alongside citrus trees or pomegranates for an enticing, edible landscape.

Dive into the wonderful world of Fruitscaping™ with Loquat Trees. From the stages of planting and care to the delightful reward of your homegrown loquats, these trees promise a fascinating and fruitful journey.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
