Transforming your garden or backyard into a tropical retreat has never been easier thanks to the Loquat Tree. Plant them by themselves or intermingle this Asian beauty with a few palm trees and you can create a tropical paradise right at home.

Perfect Size for a Multitude of Planting Possibilities

Loquats will grow to about 10 feet high, making them a good size for a diversity of planting options. The shiny, thick leaves with saw tooth edges and delicate white flowers combine for a tropical look and fresh scent that will help you escape from the day’s stress.

Delicious Fruit with a Flavor all its own

The visual appeal and subtle fragrance aren’t the only tropical features of the Loquat. Its juicy orange flesh has a delicious tropical flavor—like a sweet, tangy plum and a kumquat all in one.

Loquat Means Low Maintenance

Capable of tolerating winds, drought and a wide spectrum of soil types, Loquats thrive in full sun and do well in partial shade. Well draining soil and plenty of water are about all your Loquat will require.

It's Easy to Plant your Loquat Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Loquat Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Loquat Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Loquat Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I purchased this tree and a blackberry bush. They both arrived in excellent condition. The tree was large beautiful, beyond my expectations! I have just placed another order for three more trees and I am confident they will be the best ever! Great site with great produce/trees! You can tell they know trees and are excel with help to the customer. I also had a question and they answered it almost immediately! What more could you ask for? Great trees, great service. Love this site and will continue to add to my orchard from their stock

I just received the Japanese Plum (Loquat) tree in the mail and I am so happy. The tree is vibrant and the appearance exceeds my expectations. The shipping container (tall cardboard box) was excellent and protected the tree during shipment. Cannot wait to plant. Thank you!

Loquat tree
I purchased Loquart tree which is tropical fruit so I was not sure it grows in my area which is Zone 7, but it is growing, so much so I got another one. They haven't produce fruit yet but I am guarding them by placing net cover and despite windy area they are giving flowers now I had seen mature tree in the past but never with flowers. Hopeful I get some fruit; even without they are evergreen and give nice trees. Also Fast-Growing sent they very promptly and help me to prepare to plant them. It was very helpful and reliable. They said they would mail in next day and that was what happened.

Question- Can someone answer
I emailed and called the customer service. I asked to know what type of loquat tree they sell. They have one picture of the White Loquat and another one of the Gold Nugget under the same order. There is no drop down window to give one the option to choose. I got a call back saying that they would check and after that, no one called. I do want to purchase, but growing up with Loquat trees, I really want to make sure that I get the Gold Nugget one. ANYONE can Help please? I Love the reviews and am hopping to get my question answered, so that I can get my own tree. Thanks, Tatjana ( 202- 468-1439. Hoping to be a customer soon)

Better than expected
I was pleasantly surprised by the maturity and size of the tree when it arrived. It was packed well and arrived in great shape.
I have had the tree for several month. I overwatered it before leaving for a trip and the leaves were yellow on the bottom row but the tree bounced back. It is lush, green and growing. Perfect tropical tree for my Florida lanai. Excellent quality..

Loquat tree-Will this tree produce edible fruit and, if so, how long until it begins producing?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: Fruit is delicious but I am not sure how long before it produces fruit. The one we had when I was growing up was already many years old and always produced a tree full of fruit. It is still producing and is about 80 years old or more.

christine on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: I would suggest placing it in a pot. Put it outside in the warmer days, and bring it inside when temperatures start to dip below 50 degrees.

is loquat tree self pollunating or need more than one plant?
satya g on Jul 24, 2014
Best Answer: While some loquat tree varieties are self-fertile, many are not. A self-fertile tree has both male and female flowers and will produce fruit on its own. A tree that is not self-fertile will only produce when planted near enough another loquat tree for cross-pollination to occur. A tree that is only partially self-fertile will produce without being paired with another tree, but fruit production will be reduced. Bees are the primary pollinators of loquat trees, so if there are no bees, you should expect a small crop.

Do I need to buy the patio planting kit if I have to plant the tree in my backyard ?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2014
Best Answer: The planting kit would not be necessary. It comes with a pot, which you will not need if you're planting your tree in the ground!

should the spent blooms be pruned off the loquat tree??
A shopper on Oct 22, 2014
Best Answer: Sorry I can't help. I just planted mine a few months ago and they haven't bloomed yet. I think that even if they should be pruned off, after a few years they'll be so high in the tree that I'll just let them auto prune.
Good luck

What month is for planting ...in Dallas TX ?
Surinder M on Aug 10, 2014
Best Answer: It's best to plant in the early Spring or early Fall. However once your temperatures cool off, and aren't in the 90's or above it will be fine to go ahead and plant your Loquat Tree.

Has anyone tried planting this in the ground in zone 7? I am debating potting it or planting it on the ground but we do get frost (not all the time) but for a couple of winters now.
Gilly on Aug 10, 2014
Best Answer: Loquat Trees grow fine planted in the ground in zone 7. Spread hay, pine straw or mulch around the base of your tree to keep the roots warm, and cover it with a towel or sheet at night to protect it from frost.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most dormant trees shipped in the

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
