The Big Jim Loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) is a beautiful fast-growing tree with delicious, sweet, and slightly tangy fruit reminiscent of a kumquat and a plum. Loquats make excellent jams, jellies, and pies. Great as an indoor or outdoor plant, Loquats are one of the wonderful fruits of spring. High in nutrition and flavor, nothing signals the start of summer like a delicious Loquat. They are one of the fastest tropical fruit trees to bear fruit as they can begin fruiting after about 2 years.
As with other tropical fruits, Loquat trees can be grown indoors, on balconies, patios, and limited-space gardens. Enjoy the attractive trees as ornamentals if you choose to plant your Loquat tree in an indoor container!
