young Loquat flowering

Hi We recently purchased a Loquat tree and planted it a few months ago , it is now covered in flowers, is this ok or will it slow the trees growth ? We were told with our stone fruit trees to remove the fruit for the first 18 months or it would slow the tree's growth . We did this and the trees thrived, should we do this with the immature loquat?

I would remove them, the tree is too small.

I know with mango if you just cut the flower they sometimes will just flower again so you usually let small fruit set and then remove.

I am not sure if it would be the same with loquat but it would be less risk if you just remove small fruit.

Don't worry, they grow very fast and you will be enjoying lots of fruit next season. We have a grafted nagasakiwasi and the fruit are delicious!

Hey Waterfall, do you know how long the Nagasakiwase takes from flower to ripe fruit? Mine are flowering right now.

Hi Grant,

We started eating ours around late June. I have flowers and some small fruit on mine now too.

Loquats are usually the first fruit to ripen, sometimes in Spring sometimes up to November-depends on weather I think.Mine are flowering now so probably have a Spring crop as long as Winter doesn't hold them back.
