Alrighty! Out my kitchen window I see signs of hope. My Loquat tree has borne two fruit. Whoo Hoo! Now... that's not much, but it IS a start. The first image is from the "FastGrowingTrees.com" website. That is what I am hoping for... someday. The tree is known for its fruit AND its leaves.
Loquats are unusual among fruit trees in that the flowers appear in the autumn or early winter, (lovely fragrance) and the fruits are ripe at any time from early spring to early summer. So I guess mine are right on track. BUT we had an extended and unseasonably COLD snap this past winter which killed off many of the buds.
More from Wikipedia:
"The tree is native to China and has been cultivated there for over a thousand years. It has also become naturalised in Georgia, Armenia, Afghanistan, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bermuda, Chile, Kenya, Lebanon, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, South Africa, the whole Mediterranean Basin, Pakistan, New Zealand, Réunion, Tonga, Central America, Mexico, South America, and warmer parts of the United States (Hawaii, California, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina)."
I also saw Loquat trees on a recent visit to South Korea to visit my daughter and Loquat fruit in the 5-Day Market on the island of Jeju.
Now I am on a mission to try Loquat Jam and tea!
