Loquat for the home landscape

Published: Wednesday, November 27, 2013 at 09:27 AM.

Regular pruning of loquat trees is not necessary, because they have naturally well-shaped, symmetrical crown.  However, occasional pruning may be needed to remove dead wood.  Also, if you notice that your loquat is producing very small fruit, pruning a few branches may help increase fruit size, by reducing the total number of fruit clusters on the tree.

For more information on growing loquat contact the Gulf County Extension Service at 639-3200 or visit our websitehttp://gulf.ifas.ufl.edu or www.http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu and see Publication  H55 & ENH394.
