 Eriobotrya japonica 
Family: Rosaceae
Loquat, Japanese Plum, Nispero
Origin: China
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Season: January to April. Small, well-shaped tree. Large 12 long, stiff leaves, dark green above, whitish underneath. Yellow to orange color fruit, somewhat pear-shaped, 2 long and 1 1/2 across with 1 to 3 seeds. Eaten fresh, in jellies and wines. Moderate growth, salt tolerant. Fruit may be thinned to increase size. Many varieties. The loquat should really be used more, the fruit is especially good just eaten out of hand or in poultry casseroles. The plant, too, deserves more attention because it's a lovely hold-leaved green beauty. The orange fruit resembles an apricot when it is ready for picking because of its orange color. Wash and dry the seeds and plant them 1/2-inch deep in good fertile soil that has ample drainage. With proper care and frequent repottings, the loquat can grow into an attractive tree in gardens where temperatures don't go below 25 degrees F. Loquats are sometimes called Japanese medlars.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful
