Loquat - Nagasakiwase

Eriobotrya japonica

Loquat Nagasakiwase

Fruit Trees > Subtropical Fruit Trees > Loquat Tree > Loquat - Nagasakiwase
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.

fruits early in Spring before fruit fly appear. Survived transplanting from pot to shady spot in the ground ( southern facing fence ) but still blossomed and now has about 20 ripening fruit in Spring and getting much more sun

Just a baby right now, my neighbours have huge trees that you can not reach the fruit so I know they grow well here.Has been growing well through autumn, trunk has thickened up nicley, seems to grow very fast. They are a great looking tree too.

The fruit is rather small but the seeds are also small. Good taste. Have moved the tree to Katoomba where it continued to grow well and produced very tasty fruit. Coddling moth was a serious problem in Sydney but have not had this issue in Katoomba so ...

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 ...

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...

This plant has taken off like a rocket! Nice big leaves and look forward to fruit. I remeber wild parrots at my parent place also enjoyed the fruit, but I wouldn't mind sharing if they attract birds here.
