The Japanese Loquat, scientifically known as Eriobotrya japonica, is a small evergreen tree. Known for its ornamental and fruit-bearing qualities, the Japanese Loquat features large, dark green, leathery leaves with pronounced veins. Clusters of fragrant white flowers bloom in late autumn to winter, giving way to small, rounded or pear-shaped fruits. These fruits have a sweet and mildly tart flavor and a juicy, succulent texture. The Japanese Loquat is appreciated for its resilience in a variety of soil conditions and its ability to withstand cooler temperatures. Beyond its edible fruits, this plant is cultivated for its decorative appeal, making it a popular choice in gardens and landscapes.
