Just Fruits Loquat Seedling Tree â€“ Tastes Like Apricots!
Loquats are probably one of the most outstanding edible landscaping trees. The leathery broad-leaved trees lend a tropical feel to the garden. Fragrant white flowers bloom throughout fall and the trees are gorgeous when in fruit with the clusters of bright yellow fruit covering the plant. Tangy sweet apricot- flavored fruit. The fruit can be used in any dish that you would use peaches in. Our favorites is smoothies. So easy, just Â pop out the seeds and throw a handful of fruit into the blender, wiz until pulp is a fine texture, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and thin with pineapple juice. It is soooo good! These are seedling trees and will begin bearing in 6 to 8 years. Self fertile so you only need one tree to get fruit.Â Ripens March.

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.
