Finally the young #loquat #tree #fruit are ripe a week after the mother tree. But this it’s first time so it must be a bit shy 😋😋 #loquattree #loquats orangefruit #juicy #sweet #gyo-tree #gyo #grownfromseed

Amazing Rula. I have one too but it’s small and hasn’t fruited before. Do you eat them off the tree or do you use them in recipes. I’ve never tasted them. 🤩

Thank you Jane 😍 I know they will be delicious but I was surprised to see them more round shaped than the mother tree’s fruit but still a nice surprise 😄😋 @pelly

Thanks Jeff ☺️ Oh yes, we tend to wait very long for so little growth but it’s amazing when they finally show the results. I honestly wasn’t expecting fruit from the first flowering year but I love a good surprise 😋😄 @jeatacake

It's a great reward for your patience. How many years is it from sowing the seed?

Thank you Phil 🧡 Mine is only 5 years old and this is the sixth. I usually cant wait and just eat them off the tree and whatever I can’t reach or don’t get to soon enough is eaten by the birds 😁 They flower on the tips of branches in autumn if that helps. If you prune them regularly they won’t flower and if the winter frost gets to them they won’t produce. I don’t know if it helps but your climate seems similar to our so there’s no reason why they won’t produce in the near future @philstalder

This one is a very quick grower and easy maintenance if you just give it water and food every once in a while 🌱 It only took five years to flower and bear fruit unlike walnut and avocado trees that make you wait forever 😄 @jeatacake

Do you think they grow well in Thailand too? If you find them in the market you should give them a try Jeff but then again home grown is so mch better 😄🤣 @jeatacake

Good morning everyone 🤗 this tree grew from a seed five years ago. This is the first time it has tiny flowers, so maybe we’ll have some fruit from it 😋 (the mother tree is still giving out fruit and seeds by the way) #loquat #loquattree #seed-grown #seed-tree
