Which Loquat Variety Has The Biggest Fruit?

brute(Florida 9B)August 4, 2012

I've got a dwarf loquat tree that is nice and healthy and produces quite a bit of nice-tasting fruit. The only problem is, the fruit are kinda "dwarfish" themselves. By the time I get them peeled and cored, there's not much left!

Can anybody recommend a full-sized loquat tree that produces large fruit?

Hi just wondering how the portuguese loquat is doing?
Any pics? I would really like a cutting to graft on my fruiting tree maybe it will speed up the fruiting time of the graft?

Thinning your fruit and fruit clusters early should allow the remainder to reach maximum size.

http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg050 is a link from U of F. It indicates fruit will not come true from seed. Grafting required.

I've got five different grafted loquat trees. The Christmas variety has the largest fruit from the five.

Search top tropical website for loquat varieties and availability of grafted, high quality plants. I bought 2 of my trees from them.

I could also send you some photos from my garden if you provide me your email.
