Default Sourcing loquat varieties

Hello all,

I have a few loquats but have some room for more. I have some rootstock and could graft if I could find some scion wood but I am really in the market for some growing trees or grafted varieties. I have big Jim, adVance or champagne (memory fails) and yehuda.

Are there any nurseries with other cultivars?

Any help would be appreciated.

Keith

Keith, I don't know of anybody offering varieties in the U.S. other than those you've listed, besides Arboreum : Bareroot Fruit Trees but they don't list loquats on their web site. They have sold grafted loquat trees of quite a few varieties at various plant events in northern California. I bought an Argelina from them. There is an article about some of their varieties at http://www.crfg.org/chapters/santa_c...afSepOct09.pdf

His prices are pretty high. I paid $35 for my 5 gallon tree a few months ago. I have no idea if he'd be willing to sell scions or not. Maybe Lisa Stapleton, who wrote that article and had purchased 3 varieties from Patrick in 2009, might be willing to sell you some scions. Her email address is on page 1 of the newsletter.

By the way, Ken Love of Hawaii sent material of many different varieties to the USDA repository in Davis, CA several years ago. The former curator there was interested in them but it wasn't officially a species in their collection. I saw them at least once during my visits there and I think I was told they were unsure what was going to be done with them. Several of them had fireblight even though I've never seen fireblight on my trees or others in yards, etc. but a friend of mine told me he has had problem with fireblight in loquats.

I did plant two loquats that were probably of seedling origin. After a hurricane one died and the other remained sickly and would not grow and seems to have disappeared. They were in a pear orchard that from time to time does get fireblight so it is possible that along with being weakened by storms they became suceptible to fireblight. The other 4 loquats at other locations on my 8 acres show no sign of illness.

Life - Some assembly required, As is no warranty, Batteries not included, Instructions shipped separately and are frequently wrong!

Kentucky Bourbon - It may not solve the problem but it helps to make it tolerable!

Statistics - Data that analyst twist to support the insane opinions of those that pay them.

I've got bunches of Loquat seedlings available for adoption here but don't have a clue as to what cultivar they are.
The "source tree" is going to have one heck of a bumper crop this year, can't wait to start spitting seeds!!!

From all accounts from folks that have been getting seedlings from us over the years they have all been true to the original's flavor.

They don't keep very long unless a little piece of the stem is left on & then they don't last more than a couple-few days.

Actually, they're probably closer to small plums in size & "style of eating".

my survivor is really puny...i'll give it the rainy season to get going...or it's nixville and I'll plant a new tree of some type.

My Malay Apple is very happy but my Custard Apple grows leaves and just one fruit in 4 years...having very good luck grafting selected citrus on old rootstock that had failed grafts.

Avocados in 2 varieties in bloom now and 6 different mango types getting started...gotta stop buying young trees and then the frequent irrigation might permit more time with the umbrella drinks on the veranda!

Does anybody know what cultivars were available in the US over 50 years ago?
Wild guesses, anybody?

update: someone was nice enough to turn me on to an old book, circa 1963, titled "A History of Subtropical Fruits and Nuts in California".

It's available for download from: http://websites.lib.ucr.edu/agnic/bu...utterfield.pdf

It's about 15MB in size & a very informative read. (for California folks, at least).
