About Seedling Loquat
Seedling Loquat is an evergreen fruiting tree or shrub of the rose family, is native to southeastern China and naturalized in Japan centuries ago. Loquats have large, leathery, deeply-lobed evergreen leaves that give a tropical look to your garden. Fragrant white blossoms produce clusters of tasty, light orange, apricot-like fruit. The fruit is particularly prized in Japan. Loquats grow exceptionally well in the Pacific Northwest, although their habit of blooming during the winter means that we only get fruit during mild winters.
