GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The Loquat is a large evergreen shrub or tree, grown commercially for its orange fruit and for its leaves, which are used to make herbal tea.
  • It is also cultivated as an ornamental plant and is in the family Rosaceae and is native to the cooler hill regions of south-central China.
  • Loquat fruit is especially high in vitamin A and beta carotene, an antioxidant.
  • These nutrients lower the risk of colorectal, lung, and other cancers.
  • The loquat leaf, seed, and fruit have been shown to reduce inflammation, the body's over-reactive response to an irritant like germs or allergens.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It prefers growing in soil that has a loamy texture and drains well.
  • The tree is not sensitive to differences in pH levels and grows well in acidic or alkaline soil.
  • If you're growing the loquat near the coastline, then make sure your soil has no salination.
