RE: loquat tree seedlings

Do you have room to plant them in the ground? The pots might be too small for them. Down here they grow like weeds and I have never heard of anybody having any problems with getting them to produce. I just sprouted a couple seeds to take to my farm to plant out there. I would be surprised if it takes more than three years for them to start to produce some.

RE: loquat tree seedlings

Yes one of the loquat seedling is planted in the ground, but
no fruit. one is in a meium size pot, it had fruit about 3 or 4 years ago. beautiful large fruit. But no fruit since then. I also have one that is grafted with a local graft, its loaded with fruit every year. This is a photo of the seedling that had fruit about 3 years ago. no fruit since
thanks for the follow up.
