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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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!
