Loquat - Seedling

I am not sure what variety loquat I have as it was a gift but I don't think it's grafted. It is probably one of the most vigorous trees in my garden. I have alwasys kept him in a big concrete pot to try and limit him size but I don't think he listens to me. It didn't fit in the pantec when we moved and I had to cut the crown out (and even then he had to bend over to fit). He didn't mind though and has gone crazy since.


He will be 4 next year so I am hoping to get my first crop! I have noticed a few of these trees around Newcastle and they all seem to being growing well.


He is VERY thirsty. New leaves and branches get droopy in dry weather. A good water and there is no permanent damage. I grow native violets in the pot as an early water indicater - if the violets droop it's time for a drink!


Winter 2011: I have my first flowers! Fingers crossed that I will get fruit soon! I took the pic a bit late so the flowers have gone skanky but they are still flowers!


Fruiting Months June and July

Planted: 2007

Height 2.25 metres

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

First Fruited: 4 Years from purchase in pot

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: chicken poo, worm castings, Seasol, Charlie Carp

Pest Control:

slaters = the pot got a bit of a slater infestation and they started eating the leaves. I filled the pot up with water til it was overflowing which triggered a slater exodus and then got rid og them by hand (well foot actually).

fruit is yummy like a pineapple crossed with a lemon and a hint of vanilla. Doesnt keep at all though. Good looking rainforest type tree would suit any large garden. the large furry leaves are generous suppliers of mulch. Plant a seed it will grow! Supposed to fruit in winter but I think mine was a bit late. Fruit is generous early in life we had a bout 10 in the first 6 months.

This tree is known to harbour fruit fly over winter, as yet they are too busy with my tomatoes to notice the loquot!

Grew from seed I got from a tree at the local park. Planted in a recycling bin, took off, fruiting in just over two years from seed!!! tough bugger, had three seasons of delicious fruit with it, but I had to lop it when we renovated the house. Height at death (5yo) approx 3-3.5 metres.

Purchased from Daley's, and I love how fast it was delivered, as well as how well it was packaged. I love the clear seedling tubes!! My posty lady was very careful with it. I think it's brilliant, making the packaging clear so the delivery peeps are a bit more careful.

I waited a bit too long to repot I think. I popped it my bathroom for a few days, in the window, because we were having a very hot week, and I didn't want it to die, as so many things do on entering my hotbox urban rental yard (Brisbane Southside!). When it went outside a week later, I promptly forgot about it for another week, while the poor thing was sitting in a tubestock pot!!

So when I repotted it, it had lost two of the seven lovely healthy leaves it came with. I repotted it immediately into a huge 70 L pot I had, with lots of compost and some coir soaked in mollasses and seasol to help it retain some moisture in the last of the Summer heat. I also threw in some blood and bone, and a handul of dynamic lifter pellets. 

It lost another leaf after that, and then just... sat there. It wasn't dying, but it wasn't living, either. Since then, in the available soil around it, I've put two different succulents in, a rose cutting, and my son's bean plants he grew at school. And they ALL just sat there for a while, doing nothing.

Despite it being the middle of winter, and cold, and dismal and cloudy and rainy, suddenly, I have new growth on the loquat! And the two succulents I thought were going to die are looking good, and the beans are actually flowering. Sadly, I did not remove enough of the skin of the half a potato I stuck the rose cutting in, so I have had a massive potato plant shoot out the side, and I had to remove that (and repot it once I saw all the baby potatoes growing off the roots!). I am quite surprised at its sudden growth, and once looking at it, despite it having only the four leaves it started with, I am startled to realise it is actually taller. Quite a hardy little thing after all!

I think I'm a few years off a harvest, but I'm hoping that it will be a good grower once the warmer weather sets in. The plan is for dynamic lifter and seasol once spring rolls around. No pests have touched it, despite the persistance of mealy bugs, grasshoppers, fruit fly and aphids all through winter this year. I'm hoping it will be hardy enough to grow to shade my bedroom window this summer!
