Product Description & Reviews
The Loquat Tree (Eriobotrya japonica) is classiied as a sub-tropical ruit tree, which means itâ€TMs a bit hardier than true tropical ruit trees. This is great news or gardeners who live in U.S. plant hardiness zones 7 through 10! Loquat ruit is an eotic choice or the gardener who wants to grow â€œoutside the boâ€ and enjoy this delectable ruit. Although tiny -- typically only 2 inches long -- loquats are bursting with a sweet juiciness that is sometimes described as a cross between an apricot and a plum!Itâ€TMs All RelativeThe Loquat Tree is actually related to apple, pear, peach and nectarine trees. But unlike these spring-lowering relatives, the evergreen Loquat Tree blossoms in all through winter and rewards you with its harvest in late winter!Fruit SetOne Loquat Tree will bear ruit without another tree nearby or cross-pollination. However, cross-pollination deinitely increases the ruit set. So the recommendation rom our horticulturists is to plant more than one tree to enjoy maimum ruit production!Two Insider Growing Tips1. Because Loquat Trees are susceptible to injury rom lawn mowers and string trimmers, mulch around your tree -- at least 5 eet away rom the trunk. These trees are not only weakened by mechanical-injury trunk damage, but they can also die rom their injuries.2. Loquat tree roots etend well beyond their drip line, which is the imaginary line around the tree where rainwater alls to the ground. So i you plant your Loquat Tree in the lawn where you ertilize the grass heavily, the tree roots take up the ecess ertilization. This may sound like a good idea -- to ertilize your tree at the same time as your lawn -- but the ecess ertilization may actually reduce the ruit set o your tree. The solution is easy: simply avoid heavy ertilization o your lawn near these ruit trees!
