Loquat - Bessell Brown

I purchased a Bessell Brown 5 years ago and subjected it to neglect. This year, for the first time, the tree has fruited prolifically and, as we are in the middle of winter, no fruit fly has attacked the ripening fruit.Big delicious fruits! | Philippa - Ballandean, QLD 09-Jul-2013
