Should I buy a grafted loquat tree?
« on: January 12, 2018, 06:21:11 PM »
I have only found seedling loquat trees at nurseries. Should I go ahead or look for a grafted variety?

Most that I see are grafted and named.  Big jim, champaigne etc.

I would get a grafted one personally.

Do you know any nurseries in San Diego that would sell them?

Walter anderson sometimes has them.  You can also get them at clausons and atkins or the other nurseries up in the farming towns in north county.  Bonita creek may have them also.

I was going to buy one from atkins last time I was there but forgot to buy it before I left.  Had several items and forgot. 

I had a champaigne loquat tree from walter andersons but the jack rabbits chewed it up and it died.   

If you go get one post back what you get.  I still would like to get one of these trees at some point.
