Succulent, tangy and sweet, wonderfully delicious Loquat fruit is rich in vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. This unique fruit is originated in the mountainous, evergreen rain forests of Southeastern China, from where it spread all across the world, including Japan.
Caring for a loquat tree properly begins with its planting. When growing loquat trees, you should plant the trees in a sunny location at least 25 to 30 feet from structures, electrical lines and other trees. Fertilize the trees three times a year with a lawn fertilizer that does not contain weed killers. In the first year, use a cup of fertilizer divided into three applications spread over the growing season.
Young trees don’t compete well with weeds, so maintain a weed-free area that extends 2 to 3 feet from the trunk of the tree. Take care when cultivating around the tree because the roots are shallow. A layer of mulch will help keep weeds at bay. In general, the fruits are allowed to ripen on the tree before harvesting. Ripe fruits have soft texture. Externally, the skin surface is fuzzy but smooth with yellow to orange color. Internally, the flesh is either white or golden-yellow depending on the cultivar type.
