Not sure how many varieties there are but I have or am hoping to have a few different varieties.
One thing that Ive noticed with my VERY limited experience is that there isnt a tremendous difference in taste amongst the varieties.
Is that just me?
I bet it is SUPER difficult ( as in quite possibly will never happen ) that any one of us ever experience the taste of fruit from a true variety, my guess is that the trees that are out there either planted already or floating around for sale are so badly watered down thru the various propagation methods.
Anyway I love loquat, I have roughly 30 trees planted so far and plan many more, most of mine were started from seed, they grow fast and are cheap but I do have some pricey store bought versions.
What varieties do you have, any interest in trading plants? Maybe there is a subsection of this forum just for that?
