Loquat Nagasakiwase

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.

Question & Answer

I am wondering if there are any evergreen, edible trees that will grow in a cooler climate, I live in Budnanoon 2578 and sometimes have frost during winter. Thanks. From: Bundanoon NSW

I would suggest Feijoa, Loquat, Cherry Guava and Pine Nut as possible edible evergreen trees for a cold climate #CategoryFeijoa1331 #GuavaStrawberry1040 #CategoryLoquat1998 #CategoryPine2188

As some varieties fruit early spring , these are naturaly free of fruit fly | Suman - Perth, WA 22-Dec-2007

Loquat Tree

Nothing can CURE diabetes but any fruit that is low GI can assist in the control of blood sugar levels. No food should be eaten in excess and each person must consider their overall kilojoule intake when deciding what and when to eat. | Roz Zimmerman - Tamworth, NSW 09-Jun-2008

Loquat Tree

Warning! The Young Leaves and the seeds contain what we commonly know as cyanide! So, only the flesh of the fruit can be eaten! see wikipedia for more info | Tara - Lismore, NSW 10-Jun-2008

Loquat Tree

Warning! I was told that if I grow loquat, by law I will have to prevent fruit flies for getting to the fruits using products like "eco-lure". This is because loquat fruits really attract fruit flies because of its juiciness. | Pauline Lee - Chatswood, NSW 02-Jul-2008

Loquat Tree

It gets attacked by fruit fly. I tried spraying with rogor when the fruit first turns yellow and that stopped the phenomenon of rotting due to bacterial infection introduced by the fruit fly. What is the best tasting variety? | Neil - Panania, NSW 11-Jul-2008

Loquat Tree

Yes, the loquat seed does contain what is called basically...sugar cyanide.. as do apple seeds, peach apricot, and any of the "rose" family fruits.. although, you would have to eat large amounts of these seeds to have any kind of toxic effect. | Sharon Rockwell - Phoenix, AZ 24-Apr-2009

Loquat Tree

Actually, as long as you don't chew the seeds, you should be okay. The same is true for apple. The unchewed seeds pass through the system without being digested. Chewing will release the toxin. | Laurie - Www.naturalhealingtalk.com - Lunenburg County, NS 16-Aug-2009

Loquat Tree

The cyanide is the same kind that is present in almonds & apricot seeds which eaten in small amounts are relatively harmless and are linked to cancer prevention & cure, do a search. | K G - Melbourne, VIC 26-Oct-2009

Http://middlepath.com.au/plant/Loquat_Eriobotrya-japonica_Rosaceae_Amygdalin_B17_Laetrile.php The above site has info on the herbal use of the leaves & the seeds. For me, the wine is one of the best ways to enjoy this delicious fruit. | Anne Heinrich - Adelaide, SA 29-Apr-2010

A seedling tree grows on my street. Birds love it and best eaten when ripe: you could get addicted to it. Propagation from seed is easy, no scarification or chilling required. | Carl Ramirez - Kensington, NSW 15-Feb-2011

The native budgies in this part of Victoria nibbled their way through the entire tree of ripe fruit in one morning , so even though you keep watch they can still beat you. | Susan Taylor - Boort, VIC 02-Nov-2013
