loquat tree seedlings

pedroza(Calif. zone 9)June 23, 2013

I have 5 loquat seedlings that are now 13 years old.
2 have fruited about 3 years ago, once and haven't fruited
since. I am in zone 9.Central california. The trees are in 5 gal pots why don't they fruit and how do I get them to produce ? Any info will be greatly appreciated.
thanks , pedroza

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.

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.
