Eriobotrya japonica - Loquat tree seedling

Eriobotrya japonica - Loquat tree seedling (Eriobotrya japonica - Loquat tree)

This is one of two loquat trees that popped up in my front yard last year (from birds). It’s 3 1/2 ft tall. I dug them out a couple weeks ago. Photo taken July 20, 2022.

That looks a healthy plant. Maybe one day it will give you some fruit??

What did you do with them? Plant them up in pots or moved them to somewhere else in your garden?

It does look very healthy for being such a neglected plant. I’ll probably give them away.

I have Jacarada trees, Norfolk Island pine trees, Fig trees, along with Lantana always popping up in my yard from the birds. Last year a Bird-of-Paradise (Strelitzia reginae) popped up and two years ago an umbrella tree (Schefflera actinophyllum) popped up. It’s 7 ft tall now.

I’m going to give them away. I have no room for a big loquat tree. They grow very large, very fast.
