LoquatThis popular evergreen fruit tree has been under cultivation for over a century throughout many parts of Australia. It has beautiful downy foliage, fragrant flowers, delicious fruit, and it's easy to grow! The golden-yellow fruit has a pear-like flavour with a touch of apricot and pineapple.

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.

To avoid fruit fly or bird biting, use paper envelopes to wrap the cluster of fruits when they are green, then staple the envelope. It keeps fruit fly away from laying eggs.BTW just leave two/three baby loquat fruits for each cluster maxmising the harvest

Loquat - Nagasakiwase

My tree has fruited well in a dryish part of my garden. Rosellas love the fruit and beat me to the best. I am experimenting with eating the seeds which may be mildly toxic (like bitter almonds)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

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.
