I had one as a kid, the fruit was delicious and the tree vibrant and lush looking.
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!
This tree growing well, but still no flowers ( Apr 11 ). I planted in a position with only afternoon sun, as I thought it may fruit in semi-shade. Still hoping as I love loquats.
