Turn Your Garden into a Tropical Paradise

Transforming your garden or backyard into a tropical retreat has never been easier thanks to the Loquat. 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.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Loquat 'Japanese Plum'



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Loquat 'Japanese Plum' 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 'Japanese Plum' again after the transplant is complete.

My loquat tree is in an oversized pot and will stay outside for the summer and early fall. When should I prune it before bringing inside for the winter? And how much can I prune it so it will still fit indoors? I live in Zone 5
LaRee on Jun 23, 2016
Best Answer: During the first two years of growth prune tree every couple of months, cutting off the growing tips of all of its branches to keeping them a little shorter than 3 feet. Prune a mature tree after the summer fruiting season.
