LOQUAT - NAGASAKIWASE

Loquat NagasakiwaseBotanical Name: Eriobotrya japonica
Description

The best Japanese variety so far, it has deep orange flesh, high flesh/seed ratio and very sweet flavour. Earliest variety to ripen. Thinning fruit will enhance fruit size. The Nagasakiwase often has 2 crops a year in the subtropics. The first crop in April / May then again in August. We have found by cincturing in summer, the August crop has a much larger crop and better fruit size.

JennyCockerill1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2597 days 19hrs

Comments: -

Abundant sweet yellow fruits year round here in the tropics of Central Qld.  Our family of 6 all try to beat each other to pick these little treats!  The tree is about 8 years old and has been fruiting well for the past 3 years.  Low maintenence, just an occasional prune every couple of years to keep the tree compact and the fruits easy to reach.

Fruiting Months January, February, March, April, May, June, August, September, October, November, December

Height 3 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Pest Control:

No sprays needed.  Very little issue with pests, though occasionally the ants get in if the fruits are left to get over-ripe on the tree.

I bought this plant mainly for it's medicinal value. According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine loquats help to relieve cough by soothing the throat. I chose this Japanese variety because it is said to be high flesh/seed ratio.

I like this plant as it not only provides fruit but also some much needed summer shade for the garden. Also it is 1 of my wife's favourite fruits so I gained some good Brownie points by planting it for her as a birthday surprise.

It has been in for 2 years now, started about 30 cm high and is now close to 1.5 m high.

Comments: - May 2015: Planted with my Champagne Loquat in December 2014.  It hasn't grown as strongly as my Champagne though has been exposed to the exact same conditions.  The plant has a lot of potential but needs a little time and nurturing.  Gets slightly less sun than my Champagne but has been sunburnt whereas the Champagne has not.  Looking forward to the next year of growth.

GardenOfColumba's Edible Fruits
Update: 1418 days 15hrs

Comments: - A good loquat beats supermarket apricots. Hardy, productive. First season's fruit have been superb. Second season fruits ripened very early due to an unusually warm winter, and were very sweet but not as flavoursome.  Will consider thinning fruit for a better harvest next year.

I think the loquat is in too much shade. See what happens this spring.

Sept 2013: Tree has taken off, growing through winter. Had a branch full of flowers, took all but 5 off to see what the fruit are like. Taste great; juicy, sweet, nice texture when bright yellow.

My loquat came from Daleys and I was a little hesitant to proceed with my purchase due to our tropical climate. It has been in the ground for a year and I chose my site carefully. So far so good - the new growth on the top has come since it has been in the ground.
