Loquats are small, evergreen trees with beautiful coarsly-textured, broad leaves of deepest jade green. Warm winters bring an abundant crop of delicious pale yellow fruit with an apricot flavor. Our loquat trees are all cutting grown or grafted to ensure fruiting in two years. Plant in part to full sun with well-drained soil. What's not to love? They are evergreen, salt tolerant and drought tolerant, plus a great fruit!.
