Loquat Trees

Loquat Trees Buyer's Guide

Loquats, scientifically known as Eriobotrya japonica, are small to medium-sized evergreen trees that thrive in subtropical and mild temperate climates.

These versatile trees produce fruits typically round or pear-shaped, with a yellow to orange color when ripe. Loquat fruits are known for their sweet and tangy flavor, reminiscent of a blend between peach and citrus. Enjoy their sweet and tangy flavor straight from the tree or use them to make jams, jellies, and desserts. Loquats are low-maintenance and offer health benefits, such as being rich in vitamins A and C. With a little care, you’ll soon be harvesting your own delicious loquats!

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy a Loquat tree.
