Large clusters of sweetly fragrant white flowers are born in winter which are followed by delicious 1" apricot-like fruit. Large dark green tropical foliage adorns the limbs of this large evergreen shrub to small tree with a dense rounded habit. Few if any pest or disease problems.
Loquats do best with a well-drained soil but are quite tolerant of most soil types and are quite adaptable to urban landscapes. The Japanese Plum is moderately drought tolerant once established. Can be grown as an elegant evergreen espalier and in containers where not hardy.
