Dwarf loquat

    2 responses

nancyjane starts with ...
I have a dwarf loquat that has been in the ground for 2 years in a pot for 1 before that. The tree has grown to about 2 metres with full thick foliage. When can I expect flowers and fruit. I am in a temperate zone of NSW

It's probably on quince rootstock for the dwarfing habit. Don't know what effect that would have as far as flowering is concerned, but,
I recently bought a grafted Nagasakawase which is starting to flower within 6 months of purchase. I also bought a Bessell brown which is showing no signs of flowering, and is what I expect for the first two years at least.
My older established Nagasakawase, probably a seedling, took 5 years to first fruit. It doesn't have that tall seedling shape, it's very short and stubby. After 7 years it's just over 2 metres high. Something very weird is going on with that tree. As long as the fruit is very sweet and delicious who cares?

I have a couple of seedlings that have a compact shape others are more upright, I think the shape of them is just genetic, I've have no flowers on any other them yet and they are 12-15 feet tall and 7-8 years old so it must be soon. The Quince rootstock just slows them up all over, it's too dwarfing for my climate
