loquat varieties for colder areas

Posted by nativeplanter 8a (My Page) on

I have recently become interested in loquats. My understanding is that in some years they might fruit here in southeast Virginia. I am wondering if the time of fruit harvest (early vs. late), and thus I presume flowering, would make a difference. I am having difficulty finding information on when the different varieties flower. I was at first thinking a very early variety like 'Christmas' might work best, but then maybe one that flowers very late and fruits late would be smarter, if perhaps it might flower in February or so. Does anyone have any thoughts as to which (early or late) might be best?
